Seeing loved ones is something everyone looks forward to. However, for children who are off to see family members, after the initial fuss has gone boredom can soon start seeping in.
In Darlington, the team at Riverside View Care Home have created a ‘kiddie corner’ full of fun things to keep youngsters occupied.
Claire Westmorland, Home Manager, said: “Children are always welcome here at Riverside View. However, we wanted to do something for them to help make their visit special. So ‘Kiddie Corner’ was born. This has gone down really well with the children and their families. Who said care homes were dull?”
One of the first children to take advantage of this new corner, was Archie who came to visit his great grandad. Archie visits him daily as he loves to see everyone. He dressed up in his fireman's outfit to have a photograph taken in our Wigwam which is new to the home, we have called this Riverside's Den a new addition to our kiddies corner.
