A group of primary school children from Brecon joined residents at a Trenewydd carehome as part of an intergenerational partnership during National Storytelling Week.

Year 4 pupils at Llanfaes Primary School visited Trenewydd care home to read stories to residents as part of the awareness week organised by the Society for Storytelling.

Louise Williams, activity champion at the care home said: “We were delighted to celebrate National Storytelling Week with our younger guests from Llanfaes.

“There are multiple benefits of intergenerational partnerships for the elderly, from combatting loneliness to boosting an individual’s mood. Our residents at Trenewydd had a wonderful day and thoroughly enjoyed reading and socialising with the children.”

Year 4 teacher at Llanfaes Primary School, Lesley Francies, added: “Visiting residents at the care home this week was a fantastic experience for our children.

“It was evident that these intergenerational partnerships have a real value to pupils. Reading with elderly residents obviously improves reading and writing skills, but it also helps to increase children’s confidence and overall social interaction with those outside of their social circle.”

Dear relatives,

I’m pleased to say that Shaw is making fantastic progress with the COVID-19 vaccinations. The majority of our staff and residents have been vaccinated and scheduled to get the second dose shortly.

The national statistics being reported suggest that we are over the second peak and there is light at the end of the tunnel. To get back to ‘normal’ and the life we once knew we will all need to be vaccinated to help our chances to overcome COVID-19 should we catch it and to prevent it from spreading to each other.

Each of our care homes has been doing everything in their power to ensure that residents and employees are vaccinated. The LFT testing continues to help us operate to manage the visiting, as well as exercising social distancing, using PPE, hand washing, risk assessments and adhering to all other public health guidelines.

We appreciate your continued support and understanding of the situation that the care homes face to protect your loved ones. I sincerely hope that we can get back to visiting as we once knew it.

Thank you again,

Mike Smith, Chief Operating Officer
