Ageless Play for Retirement Living
The Ageless Play Initiative collaborates with retirement living services to provide structure, support, resources and family referrals to help with the delivery of Intergenerational Playgroups.
Under this model, mums, dads, grandparents, carers, children and babies meet weekly with residents in a safe and child-friendly area within a retirement living setting. Attendees engage in a diverse array of play-based learning activities and interactions, fostering connections with other families in their local communities and establishing mutually beneficial relationships with older people. Residents are empowered when they contribute to decision making within the group and enjoy an increase in self-esteem and emotional and social wellbeing.
