Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.

For Rebecca, it is simply a joy to spread joy. She remembers the first rest home visit she arranged. “At one point I looked over at a lovely resident who was 100 and he was kind of shaking and I was worried. I got closer and saw that he was shaking with laughter because my boys were having a paper plane competition, throwing paper planes from one end of the lounge to the other. It was beautiful.”
