It's World Nursery Rhyme Week this week.
"So what! We care for adults not little children!"
Well hang on!
Are Nursery Rhymes really just for children?
Parents share them with their children, grandparents and great grandparents too.
Music is a great porthole through to the past and the rythmic recital of Nursery Rhymes are just as valuable.
World Nursery Rhyme Week really can be a wonderful initiative for care homes, fostering a sense of nostalgia and joy.
Consider organising activities like sing-alongs, creating themed decorations, or encouraging residents to share their favorite nursery rhymes and memories associated with them.
It can be a delightful way to promote engagement and social interaction among residents.
Share with local toddler groups or residents' families.
Residents with dementia may also appreciate singing to baby dolls and/or Teddy bears.
