La Boheme and Much Ado About Nothing are among the West End Theatre hits being enjoyed by care home residents in London under a new activity programme.
Care provider Nightingale Hammerson has signed up to ‘Connect Project’, run by Six Point Foundation (SPF), which provides a range of opportunities for residents to link with the wider Jewish community through live streamed events.
Alastair Addison, head of activities at Nightingale Hammerson, said: “This project will make a huge difference to all of our residents, and allow them to connect with family, friends and things of interest to them through many different strands of communication.
“The project will offer many opportunities which residents may have missed out on in recent years, including being involved in cultural events and education seminars. This will mean so much to our residents and it highlights the significance of connectivity and technology in the world today.”
The programme allows residents to see live streamed West End theatre shows as well as sharing in Synagogue and music events. Families and friends are also invited to join the screenings.
The scheme also offers computer training and support and access to music and e-book libraries.
