Wiggles and Wisdom brings generations together in our weekly activity classes held at local Independent/Assisted Living and Memory Care facilities in the New Hampshire Seacoast area. Young children (under 5 years old), their parent/caregiver, and senior residents come together for a joyful and rejuvenating experience for all!
The classes will include singing, moving with scarves and other props, book reading, puppet routines, and crafts. Collaborative and fun interactions will be plentiful as each generation helps the other when passing out materials, enjoying an art project, or completing the lyrics to a song. This active and interactive class format engages the children and seniors physically, mentally and emotionally.
Research shows that this type of programming offers important benefits to all involved.
A few of those benefits include:
• Fosters a sense of community among all ages.
• Improves children’s understanding and acceptance of their elders.
• Brings joy and exuberance to senior residents through interactions with children.
• Promotes improvement in mood and cognitive engagement for senior residents.
