Care UK Announcement - Music across the generations

Mums and toddlers were invited to take part in a fun music-making session together with residents at Care UK’s new home; Colne View, one of the leading care homes in Essex.

The session, called Bridging the Gap, saw a number of young visitors arrive at the Colchester Road care home to meet residents and get involved in a session of making music together, singing and playing instruments.

Led by Anita Albrey, of Cheeky Chimps, the session proved to be an ideal opportunity to bring different generations together.

Colne View Activities Coordinator, Carol Atkins said: “It was a great opportunity for three generations to mix and have fun. Many of our residents are grandparents and even great-grandparents - they loved to have the opportunity to see the little ones playing and to have a chat with their mums.

“The whole place was buzzing and just felt so full of life and energy, it was a really lovely afternoon. It was also really nice for the mums to meet each other for the first time and chat, some of them stayed to have a drink in our coffee shop after the session.”

Colne View opened in April 2012. Located in Halstead in Essex, Colne View is one of the most luxurious care homes in Essex. Colne View offers every level of care for older people, and all our services are tailored to each resident’s specific needs.

Colne View’s staff are specialists in the care of older people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and undertake in-depth training to appreciate what life is like for people living with the condition. Their patience, empathy and commitment mean that Colne View is fast developing a reputation as one of the leading names in Essex dementia care.
