Skip, stimulating and comforting all at the same time, everyone loves to pet him at Melbourne House. 'it is amazing the changes inspired in our residents by Skips visit'

Skip up close, so docile and 'touchable'

Karen the owner has him  well trained and the residents respond to him, 'we love his visits' said coordinator Trayce at Melbourne House.

All the residents love him and even the quiet ones reach out to talk to him and stroke him.

Buster visits Belle Vue, he is quite a different character, fluffy and friendly too ...

Buster is well behaved & even allowed to visit the bedroom and bring comfort and warmth to this resident.

& very companionable too ...

Lady Chatterley entices Ladies that Lunch in Eastwood!

Activities Coordinator for Alexandra House, Matt, does dual Intergenerational activities by taking the girls out for lunch and then getting creative when the children from Brookhill Leys School came to visit;


Choosing what to have for lunch proved an exciting challenge for Winnie and Doris;

'We love it at Alex House but Its good to get out, once in a while.'

Mine's just a half, Glennis enjoyed it really....

The Lady Chatterley pub at Eastwood, did us proud and the ladies delighted in tucking-in, to their pub grub. Doris is obviously delighted, she does like participating.

Our very own intergenerational project has been going some time now and more and more individuals are benefiting.



It is win win for the young and elderly as they embark on the creative love monsters activity. Our residents have a sense of purpose after engaging with the children.

The children always learn something from their visit.

Creativity is often at the forefront of the activities, it is engaging and rewarding;

Mobility is often debilitating, so a little physical game helps all round and is a regular feature.

Time for a chat and interaction is really as important as all activities.


'Its the great team work we have at Alexandra House, which makes it a place called home for our residents.' Manager Caroline Carraher, pictured right.
