United Kingdom.

Program Description

“From internal and external play areas, through highchairs and baby changing facilities, Belong positively encourages formal and informal opportunities for children and grandchildren to be part of life in its villages. It is these relationships that help provide the young and old alike with the positivity, social interaction and meaningful experiences that make life a joyful experience.”

“Belong Chester is the first older people’s care setting in the UK to include a fully integrated children’s research nursery, where children and residents come together on a daily basis to have fun learning and playing together.”

“This focus on the relational nature of human life is supporting individuals of all ages to benefit from interacting, learning and connecting, changing lives for the better.”

Belong Villages provides senior housing ranging from community villages, nursing, care, dementia care, apartments and home care services with a focus on intergenerational connections.

Belong Vilalges works with schools, nurseries, colleges, scouts, arts organizations and community groups to create intergenerational opportunities for older people, younger people and the whole community.

Belong Villages offer older adults programs in the arts, music, along with personalized exercise programs with a qualified exercise specialist in state-of-the-art gyms and personal care salons.

The on-site children’s nursery provides a high-quality care and learning environment for children from birth to five years and features a sensory nature and play garden.

The combination of a children’s nursery with older adult care allows both facilities to work together and create a shared environment where children and older people are actively spending time together building meaningful relationships and connections in an intergenerational community.

The intergenerational care model reduces loneliness in older adults, supports mental health and wellbeing and supports well-rounded learning and language development in children.

Daily intergenerational activities may include walks to feed the ducks, art and music classes, dining together and having spontaneous conversation.

Belong Villages received the LaingBuisson Award for Innovation in Care 2023 based on its intergenerational living model and the Nursery in Belong received the International Award at the Generations Working Together Excellence Awards 2023.
