Care Home Visits
Pupils build up a rapport with residents during regular care home visits by talking, playing board games and assisting with everyday tasks.
The project is intended to offer a social event and friendly face to people who are otherwise relatively isolated, whilst simultaneously offering help with everyday tasks and assisting in the running of a carehome.
Staff and pupil time. Some resources such as art supplies, board games etc. on occasion.
The impact of this project is assessed by the students themselves as well as the carehome staff at the end of each academic year.
Pupils aged 16 to 17 work with elderly people and carehome staff of various ages and genders.
This is a project which involves weekly visits to the carehomes.
