At Eastgate we love to join in with the local community events and activities. Recently Eastgates Alexandra House forged a close link with the local Brookhill Leys Primary & Nursery School. This new venture allows and encourages young children to interact with our residents. This is a mutual benefit, the children engage with caring for others and learn about the past. Our residents are thoroughly enjoy the childrens’ company. In this busy world our residents have little pressure on their time and can engage the children with their stories and listen to the childrens tales. This strengthens the childrens’ communication skills. Everyone involved is pleased with the outcome.
We welcome approaches from others perhaps to do something similar at our other homes or maybe you have other creative and imaginative mutually beneficial suggestions.
