Following our previous Hartbeeps sessions at Fernbrook Care Home, we will be returning with another Happy House session in October. The residents so enjoy interacting with our little Hartbeepers as they have fun in the sessions.
There, one of our outstanding Imaginators will be running a session with Fernbrook's residents with dementia and Happy Housers providing fun, games, music and sensory activities for all to enjoy no matter what their age! The session will be 45 minutes for children who are of Happy House age (walkers +) and will be followed by some time to chat with the residents along with some refreshments.
We're delighted to be able to bring the community together with our innovative, multi-sensory and interactive productions that transform everyday environments into colourful, tactile 'wonderlands'. We invite our participants, young and old alike, to join us in a musical world of the imagination.
There are just ten spaces available - so book now!
You may recently have seen the Channel 4 documentary 'Old People's Home for 4 year olds', which sees pre-schoolers swapping their nursery for a nursing home as the join a group of 11 pensioners at a care home for 6 weeks, and the positive impact the children have on the residents. According to AGE UK, there are 12 million older people in the country who suffer from chronic loneliness; 200,000 have not had a conversation with friends or family for a month and an overwhelming 3.9 million say that television in their main form of company. Similarly, it has been reported that around 60% of nursing home residents never receive visitors, and are living in social isolation.*(source Stylist magazine)
