Wentworth Senior Living, a nonprofit senior living community well known in Portsmouth, invites the community to partake in the wonderment of Wiggles and Wisdom, a joyful and rejuvenating experience of music and crafts. The event series will commence on Thursday, September 13, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and will occur every Thursday thereafter. Each class will be held at Wentworth Senior Living, 346 Pleasant Street, Portsmouth, NH.

Jenny Cameron is the creator of Wiggles and Wisdom, an initiative to bring generations together. During the class, young children (five years old and under) accompanied by their caregivers or parents will join the residents to enjoy upbeat songs, participate in crafts, read books, and utilize props such as maracas and other musical instruments. The program is designed to enhance children’s understanding and acceptance of their elders while promoting improvement in mood and cognitive engagement for senior residents.

“We were so moved by Jenny’s initiative to bring seniors and children together for an hour of pure happiness each week,” said Lindsey Joy, Wentworth Senior Living’s senior living enrichment specialist. “This collaborative event is one of many that we schedule for our residents on a weekly basis to keep them engaged physically, mentally, and emotionally.”

“I started Wiggles and Wisdom to nurture community engagement among all ages,” said Cameron. “It is so heartwarming to see the interactions between the seniors and toddlers. You can’t help but smile.”
