Ten four-year-olds are now half way through an ambitious experiment. For six weeks the pre-schoolers and 10 pensioners have been attending the same nursery. Led by three geriatric specialists, the young and older group have followed the same timetable in a new nursery located within a retirement village near Bristol. Inspired by a similar scheme set up 25 years ago in the US, this is the first time in the UK that an inter-generational experiment has set out to measure the impact on the health and happiness of the older group. As part of the experiment the older group have undergone a series of tests to measure the impact on their mood, memory and mobility after daily contact with the four-year-olds. Have the energy and activities of the children had a measurable impact on the older group? Have new friendships been formed? Can this ambitious experiment transform the way Britain cares for its ageing population?
