Sandown Park care home in Windsor is bringing generations together by working with a local pre-school. Every fortnight, the home welcomes children from local group ‘First Steps’ to spend time in the home, interacting and socialising with the residents.
The home, which is part of the Healthcare Homes Group, provides high quality care for up to 95 residents, many of whom live with dementia. It specialises in providing specialist dementia care and in the provision of innovative projects to support those living with the condition.
Following a successful project in 2015-2016 in which local army wives visited the home with their young children, this new initiative has been brought to life, and has been successfully underway since April this year.
