Playgroup SA Inc. and ACH Group have joined forces to deliver an innovative new Intergenerational Playgroup.
Playgroup SA, in conjunction with the ACH Group’s Kapara Residential Living Facility, have announced a joint project titled Intergenerational Playgroup.
The Intergenerational Playgroup is a unique Playgroup where the young and young at heart join together for a morning of important social interaction.
The Intergenerational Playgroup is an opportunity for parents, children and residents to engage in childhood activities together, create opportunities for children to further develop their skills, parents to create a local peer support network and provide isolated residents vital community interaction.
Research suggests that Intergenerational Playgroups improve outcomes and quality of life for older people, particularly those experiencing isolation/loneliness, dementia or disengagement from the community.
Playgroup SA Inc. is committed to closing intergenerational gaps between aged care residents and the community. Recognising the reciprocal benefits for younger and older people participating in activities together, building connections and building on capacity of all generations through these connections.
