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 The Township Senior Living, we promote intergenerational relationships in many ways! As the Resident Services Director, I invite children to many of our events that we hold including Sunday Brunch, Story Corner, Easter events, Girl Scout Troop, Fall Parties, and crafts. We like to have staff bring their children to join us also.
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. Building intergenerational relationships is so important right now because so many of our residents don’t have family living close to them. So, to be able to have the connection with children in our surrounding community makes our residents feel needed and it brightens their day. The residents just beam after interacting with the children.
Each of our communities works hard to foster intergenerational relationships and memorable experiences.
