College bridges the gap between the generations

Southfield Court Care Home in Huddersfield welcomed 14 students from Kirklees College who came in to spend some quality time with the residents.

Sarah Furch, Acting Home Manager, said: “It was lovely to see the generation gap being bridged between the students and the residents. Both groups took part in a number of activities before taking time out with a cup of tea to find out more about each other. I think the shocking thing is that both the students and the residents realised that they had quite a few things in common.

“This was such a huge success, that we’ll be bringing the students in on a regular basis to continue building a relationship with the residents.”
