Our residential, intergenerational service supports older people living within residential care, to re-live their history. We typically recruit younger volunteers (16-19 years old) who are then matched with a resident of a local care home. The volunteer will generally visit the older person for 1 hour each week, getting to know them and learning about their history. Towards the end of the match, the volunteer will create a visual representation of the older persons memories in the form of a 'Life Map'.
