PiF: The kindergarten and the nursing home


“A Melbourne kindergarten’s fortnightly play dates with a group of dementia sufferers is proving age is no barrier when it comes to developing friendships and a sense of community.”

In Abbotsford, a suburb of Melbourne, a nursing home and a kindergarten are next-door to each other. So an idea developed for the children to visit the elderly residents, many of whom have dementia. The visits were so successful that they’re now a fortnightly event. 🙂
