Intergenerational relations refers to any informal interaction between youth and senior adults. Generations connect every time an older person teaches a child to make a family recipe, a teenager shows an older person how to use a computer, or different generations play a sport together. The benefits of interaction between generations are far reaching: friendships are formed, assistance is provided, lessons are learned and the young and old break through the generation gap. You can help with this process by setting up intergenerational activities at your facility. Some examples of programs could include:


* penpals
* trips
* homework help
* arts & crafts
* form a choir
* cooking
* games
* holiday celebrations
* socials
* pet visits
* gardening
* reading
* talent show
* theme dinners
* fashion review
* photo share
* guest speakers
* show & tell
