Comfort kids are kids who come to Somerset to visit with residents for the mutual enjoyment of kids and seniors.
In the candid photo above, they’re dancing to Hawaiian music.
They enjoy visiting Somerset, especially during parties for all ages. Residents enjoy socializing with the kids. This is good for seniors enjoyment and morale, and the kids have a good time too! Residents’ grand-kids also have a good time visiting grandparents, especially at our parties for all ages events.
Here some comfort kids are taking a break from visiting. They’re playing soccer in Somerset’s backyard. Residents get a kick out of them. In the candid photo above, their soccer game turned into a wrestling match. They clearly don’t understand the rules of soccer!
These kids love to visit Somerset! It’s a good time for them because they like free drinks and visiting with residents. The residents like visiting with kids. These kids have a standing invitation to visit. Sometimes a staff member picks them up from their home and brings them over for a visit. In the photo above, the kids are taking a break and resting while petting a resident’s dog.
Comfort dogs visited Somerset. Residents love it! Dogs love it too! In this photo it’s a comfort puppy!
