YMCA Teesdale’s Intergenerational Project with The Manor House has been a great success to date. We have built a fabulous working relationship with the Manor House nursing home in Barnard Castle.
YMCA’s monthly visit to the Manor House is eagerly anticipated and we are always welcomed with open arms.
The residents really enjoy the sessions and the young people attending the project get a lot from it too. They see the positive effects our visits have on the Manor House residents. Many of the residents we work with and visit in the Manor House suffer with some form of dementia.
This project, which is mainly craft based, is designed to have many sensory activities which the residents and our young people enjoy.
