Summary

Compassion and Care for the young at heart

Description

Help foster relationships and understanding between generations. Seniors have a higher level of positive engagement when interacting with young people and teens; they smile with more frequency, and are more conversational. Additionally, seniors are able to teach younger people things too! There are numerous engagement opportunities for Intergenerational Interactions: come sing to, read poetry to, or perform for our seniors. Come play board games, billards or Bingo, or attend arts and crafts hour with our Connection Club Adult Day Care. Come for lunch or come for ice cream! Sky’s the limit!
