Local children share festive cheer with Ferndown care home residents

Home news

Residents at a Ferndown care home have not let the pandemic stop them keeping in touch with friends at a local school this Christmas.

Local children share festive cheer with Ferndown care home residents

Care UK’s Ferndown Manor, on Golf Links Road, received a special delivery from Ferndown First School to celebrate the festive season.

Specially made for residents, colourful Christmas cards featuring drawings and collages arrived at the home, as well as messages and festive notes. The home has an ongoing relationship with the school, after residents also enjoyed attending the school’s virtual nativity play, and is looking forward to working together on more initiatives in the future, including a pen pals scheme

Jan Cresdee, Home Manager at Ferndown Manor, said: “We’re feeling really festive here at Ferndown Manor, and receiving these Christmas cards was a wonderful surprise for residents. 

“Intergenerational relationships have proven to be enriching for both young and older people, as they provide an opportunity for the different generations to learn from each other. We were thrilled to be invited to their nativity play, which the residents thoroughly enjoyed.Local children share festive cheer with Ferndown care home residents
