Care home support for parents and toddlers

2 April 2024

Urray House care home is to offer a supportive and fun space for new parents and their children.

The Muir of Ord based care home is launching a parent and toddler group where new parents and their little ones are welcome to join residents and staff for a cuppa, games, music and singing.

The idea was conceived by proud new dad Joe Greiner, manager of Urray House.

He said: “My partner Ellie and our daughter Ezra inspired the idea of starting a new parent and toddler group. I started thinking about the support available to families like ours in our community and, although there are existing groups, I sensed an opportunity to establish our own space in the nurturing care environment of Urray House. Our residents thoroughly enjoy bonding with our daughter and seeing her take her first steps in life, and I know they’re looking forward to the launch of our group.

“Creating this parent and toddler group allows us to contribute to our community while fostering meaningful relationships with our residents, helping to bridge the gap between generations."

The group has its first meeting on Tuesday 16 April from 2-3pm. 

Urray House has also launched a new community choir which is open to residents and members of the public.
