Our Grasmere Terrace facility are very proud of their partnership with Elderslie Early Learning Centre. There have been many studies that demonstrate the benefits that intergenerational interaction can have not just for the elderly, but also for our younger citizens as well.
Once a month our residents go to visit Elderslie Early Learning to engage with the children, participate in activities, and share a lunch meal with the children.
Not only is it a great way for our residents to continue having ties to the local community through these outings, but the activity also serves as a reminiscence exercise, where our residents can reflect on their own childhood, and share what life was like when they were growing up.
Thank you to Elderslie Early Learning Centre for embracing this partnership and being so kind and welcoming to our residents. Pictured below are some of our Grasmere Terrace residents participating in various activities with the children of the Elderslie Early Learning Centre.
