Celebrating Intergenerational week during Coronaviru

Last week was National Intergenerational Week, and although all local events have been cancelled, Home Instead Senior Care and local school, Banks Lane Junior School in Offerton, managed to bring some cheer to local seniors in the community with some fantastic letter writing.

Children aged 7-9 wrote letters to clients of Home Instead Senior Care, and were delivered by CAREGivers, who have been doing their best to provide essential care services during this time of uncertainty.

Gill, a recipient of one of the letters, sad, "I started the day feeling really fed up but when my letter arrived, it really brightened my day and I now look forward to writing back.”

Clare Cliff, Head of CAREGiver Experience at Home Instead said, “We want to send a huge thank you to Banks Lane Junior School who last week sent us some letters to pass onto our clients to cheer them up.”

She continued, “We are delighted that we are able to still connect the generations, despite everything we have been going through, and we hope that the children enjoy receiving letters back from our clients in the coming weeks.”

David Moore, owner of Home Instead Senior Care Stockport also commented. He said, “I would like to applaud the many initiatives being embraced by local communities to support our older population whilst we self-isolate and socially distance ourselves, including the excellent work of Banks Junior School.”
