Belong Morris Feinmann intergenerational stay-and-play sessions

Belong Morris Feinmann, the state-of-the-art dementia care village in Didsbury, Manchester, has launched a new series of its popular weekly intergenerational stay-and-play sessions, dubbed ‘Morris Minors’, with everyone welcome to attend.

Morris Minors invites parents and grandparents and great-grandparents to bring babies and toddlers aged 0-18 months for a morning of shared multi-sensory learning experiences, involving play, storytelling and music.

Angela Luckett, Experience Coordinator at Belong Morris Feinmann, said: “It is such a beautiful group, enabling all generations to mix together and natural interaction between everyone involved, with nursery rhymes playing and soft toys scattered around. The benefits of shared experiences for all ages, including improvements in physical and mental health and learning and development, are increasingly recognised. It’s all about friendship, tranquillity and welcoming people in, and I encourage any parents with small children in the area to come along.”

Parent Anna Patel, who attends the sessions with her 14-month-old daughter, Violet, also said: "Violet is at an age where everything she experiences and each new person she meets adds so much to her learning. The residents can't help but offer her cheery smiles – they enjoy so much fun together. It's a wonderful, safe environment, with benefits for all ages, which also offers parents something a bit different whilst enjoying a coffee and cake."

Morris Minors sessions take place on Wednesdays at 11am. If you would like to attend, contact Belong Morris Feinmann on 0161 804 4200 to book your place.
