LGNI Care Home support pilot underway!

16 August 2021

We held the 1st of 3 training sessions last week as part of our LFT Charitable Trust funded pilot 'Connecting Care Homes and Communities'.  The training was attended by a variety of Care Home staff including Managers, Activity therapists, and care /nursing staff focusing on:

  • What is intergenerational practice (and how it achieves Care and Nursing Standard outcomes and it’s benefits to residents)

The next 2 sessions will cover:

  • Good practice in preparing and bringing generations together (plus activity ideas)
  • Evaluation methods and sustainability

During the training, participants have been sharing their good practice, ideas and hopes for developing intergenerational engagement in their settings.  With this new knowledge and confidence, they have also been reaching out to their local schools, churches and youth groups to discuss ways to engage with younger members of the community over the coming months for the benefits of all ages involved.

Our enthusiastic settings are Rose Lodge Lisburn, Phoenix Healthcare Clinic Newtownards and Newcroft Lodge, Holywood.
