Firth House care home has welcomed a local toddler group into the home to bridge the gap between the younger and older generation. 

Local toddlers came to Firth House in Selby this week for the first time to play games, sing nursery rhymes and of course, give plenty of cuddles.

Moo Music, which runs fun interactive music sessions for 0-5 year olds, held their first session on Monday and the fun games and music were well enjoyed by all residents

Care Home manager Pearl Millin said: “Our first session was brilliant, it was great to see all of the children interacting with the residents and they loved the singing and the games.”

Last year’s Channel 4 documentary “Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds” showed how the intergenerational link between children and care home residents can have a beneficial impact on both groups.

The group will meet weekly at the home. Anyone interested in attending the group can contact Aimee at selby@moo-music.co.uk.

If you would like to visit the home to discuss care then please contact Pearl Millin on 0800 0854296.
