Local school children reach out with messages of positivity

Craylands Lane Primary School in Swanscombe reach out to residents  and staff at Haslington Lodge with positive messages and touching  pictures of rainbows of hope.

Prior to lockdown the primary school pupils were regular visitors to  the care home. Taking part in craft sessions, singing to residents,  helping out, and making friends with residents and staff was all part of  what was becoming a routine until lockdown.

Frances Maynard, registered care manager at Haslington Lodge says:  “We have always loved to see the generations coming together building  friendships and bonds. Of course since the pandemic we are no longer  able to carry on as normal in this way. This is why we are all so  touched and happy to receive these sweet messages of positivity and love  from the children. We are missing them and they us, for now all we can  do is stay in touch and continue to support each other with our messages  of positivity.”

Haslington Lodge is a specialist 24 hour elderly care and dementia  facility where consideration is given to the differing personal needs  and requirements of residents’ care needs.
