As we age, health becomes a major focus of our daily lives. We begin to think more about eating well, getting enough exercise, and keeping our minds active. But health is more than that – it also includes our relationships with others, specifically intergenerational relationships.
According to an article in Press & News, there are the many benefits of intergenerational relationships between children and older adults.
At Carriage Court Senior Living, we promote intergenerational relationships in many ways! As the Resident Services Director, I am working on growing our Story Corner program by inviting grandchildren of residents and employee’s children. We are also working on a relationship with our local school.
When observing the interactions between children and older adults, it’s easy to see how much older adults really have to offer to children, and vice versa! They share smiles, memories, information, and more. I love to see the smiles on the residents’ faces when children are around. It’s a different kind of energy when the young and old are in the same room. Everyone has a chance to learn so much about the different generations.
Each of our communities works hard to foster intergenerational relationships and memorable experiences.

He wanted to celebrate all waitstaff, […]
