Young troupe en­ter­tains

Napier Courier - - News -

Aged care provider Ra­dius Hamp­ton Court hosted more than 50 young chil­dren from the Napier Sal­va­tion Army Mu­sic and Move­ment Group re­cently.

Res­i­dents en­joyed the young troupe. Hav­ing young chil­dren at the fa­cil­ity is won­der­ful ther­apy for the el­derly and in­ter­gen­er­a­tional vis­its are a reg­u­lar fix­ture at the rest home, says Ra­dius Hamp­ton Court fa­cil­ity man­ager Tracey Hunter. “Young chil­dren are very non-judg­men­tal and this often brings even the more aloof and quiet res­i­dents out of them­selves to start en­gag­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing.”
