The Queenslea is bridging generations at ‘Starts at 60’

Featured online on 20th June, read the full article here.

It’s back to daycare for the aged care residents at Perth’s The Queenslea as a new heartwarming intergenerational program brings the young and the young at heart together for a day of laughter and shared activities.

Picture the scene: toddlers from the Ngala Early Learning and Development Service join elderly residents for a day of singing children’s songs and doing crafts.

The early learning centre is conveniently situated within the same premises as the aged care residence, where they share a courtyard. The arrangement allows both the children and the elderly to have frequent encounters and catch glimpses of each other through the fence.

Then, once a week, The Queenslea residents are graciously invited by their little Ngala “neighbours” for shared activities.
