Bringing generations together

Cambridge mum Rebecca Broadbent regularly takes groups of parents and preschool children to visit local rest homes.

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.

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.”
