Westbury Fields Retirement Village Partnership
Redmaid’s High Junior School has a link with Westbury Fields Care Home. Every term girls visit the home, where they perform to the residents (singing, handbells). The girls also get involved in activities with the residents, for example, making a card, sharing a special item that is dear to them, decorating and planting up a pot.
The aim of the project is to help engage both the residents and the girls in joint activities, bridging a generational gap and helping to combat loneliness in the elderly.
The visits take place once every term.
