It’s all Songs & Smiles at Anya Court Care Home

Residents at Anya Court in Rugby, welcomed a gaggle of young visitors into our home as part of a new weekly music session run by The Together Project.

Songs & Smiles, which will take place every Wednesday in the home, brings together 0-4 year olds, their grown ups and residents for music, movement, singing and the chance to develop long-lasting friendships.

Each session held at our residential and dementia home on Dunchurch Road lasts approximately an hour, with the main activity followed by refreshments and a meet and mingle with residents and the care team.

The purpose of the activity is to reduce loneliness, improve well-being, tackle ageism and unite local communities through joyful intergenerational activities.

Speaking after the session, Lifestyles Leader at Anya Court Care Home, Sue Mitchell said: “It has been so great introducing Songs & Smiles to the residents here at Anya Court. Already we can see how much the residents love it, by the end of each session, residents are smiling ear to ear and not wanting it to end. It is so lovely to see the relationships grow between the residents, parents, and the children.”

Louise Goulden, Founder and CEO of The Together Project added: “We are absolutely delighted to be bringing Songs & Smiles to Anya Court.  Seeing the beaming faces of residents, babies and parents is nothing short of magical and we can’t wait for next week.”

Anya Court’s Songs & Smiles sessions take place every Wednesday at 11:00am.
