Accredited Intergenerational Training for Care Homes

23 November 2021

Calling all Care Home & Care Setting Staff!

The Covid pandemic has had a devastating impact on the community connections and mental health and wellbeing of older people in Care Homes and Settings.  LGNI are passionate about supporting you to rebuild connections for your residents and older people through intergenerational work!  Are you interested in developing intergenerational connections but just aren't sure how to do it, need ideas and some funding to support you?  Linking Generations NI's CPD accredited Intergenerational training is a great place to start, offers CPD hours, a small grant opportunity and also connection with our team.

We know that its difficult to allocate time for training and also the development of activities but also know that its vital at the current time.  LGNI are planning on running a bespoke training programme for Care Homes & Settings via Zoom and we would love to have you on board.  If this sounds like something that you would like to take part in please fill out the attached expression of interest form or fill it on online via the link below:

The training covers:

  • What is intergenerational practice (and how it achieves Care and Nursing Standard outcomes and it’s benefits to residents)
  • Good practice in preparing and bringing generations together (plus activity ideas for virtual and at at a distance)
  • Evaluation methods and sustainability

You will also receive our LGNI Intergenerational training manual, Care Home draft toolkit and Care Homes Good Practice ‘Do’s & Don’ts’ Guide to refer to.
