New mums and babies are bringing joy into the lives of retirement home residents across Auckland, as part of a wonderful initiative devised by a therapist at Selwyn Village.

Selwyn Village Baby Buddies are mums and children who, for the past eighteen months, have been visiting the homes across the city, meeting with the elderly residents.

Now to Love were invited to attend one of their meetings at their Point Chevalier residential home, and see the fantastic community work this group is doing.
