Residents of The Dynes Residential Care Home in Kemsing were joined by a group of local primary school children for an afternoon of fun and games.

Surrounded by Jenga, Scrabble and Snakes and Ladders, the Nightingale Road residents spent a rainy afternoon laughing, joking and playing board games with pupils of the local primary school.

 

The activity, which was organised by Kemsing Church, was a hit with the residents, who loved chatting to the children about their school work, whilst enjoying a relaxing afternoon.

 

Kay Hawkins, activity coordinator at The Dynes commented: “We think bridging the gap between young generations and older people is really important for the wellbeing of our residents, there is so much they can learn from one another.

 

“For that reason, we often invite schools into the home to spend time with our residents, both younger and older pupils, as well as college and university students. The residents always enjoy the visits, which create such a lovely buzz in the home!”
