Residents of Hemsworth Park Care Home took part in The Space Craft’s intergenerational ‘Craft it on’ project.
We received some lovely craft packs from The Space Craft, which got our residents to make kits to grow cress. Our residents’ beautiful creations were sent to children around the country, giving them the opportunity to develop their gardening skills.
What’s great about this project is that our residents also received gifts made by the children, which is a great way to make them feel connected to the younger generation.
Magic Moments Coordinator, Natalie said: “I loved this project as soon as I saw it. I am always looking for ways to bring our residents closer to the community and this seemed a lovely idea. Our residents have really enjoyed taking part with this and we will be doing more with other residents over the next few days.”
Hemsworth Park Care Home is located in Kinsley, West Yorkshire and provides residential care, respite care, residential dementia care, intermediate care, and support for mental health and learning disabilities.
