PDF icon8004-CWF7166-Key facts sheets-2pp A4-core-Kings Court.pdfA care home in Kidderminster has joined forces with a local school to form an intergenerational choir.

Residents from Care UK’s Brook Court, on Oldnall Road, and pupils from Foley Park Primary Academy are warming up for the Dementia Friendly Choir Concert at Kidderminster Town Hall on Thursday 28th November, where they will be performing a medley of songs.

This is the debut performance at the Dementia Friendly Concert for the choir, and pupils and residents are working hard in rehearsals to make the performance a success.

Gill Pratt, home manager at Brook Court, said: “Intergenerational relationships benefit both residents and the pupils, so the choir is a fantastic way of bringing them together. It’s been really special watching the friendships grow during rehearsals.

“The residents and pupils have picked out some lovely songs, as well as some festive carols, to get into the Christmas spirit, including everyone’s favourite Jingle Bells. I’m very much looking forward to watching the performance - break a leg to all the performers!”

Brook Court is a state-of-the-art care home which provides full-time residential, nursing, dementia care, as well as short-term respite care. The care home, which features 67 en-suite bedrooms, has been designed to enable its residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence. The care home incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities and includes its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café.
