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 Vitalia Active Adult Community – Rockside, we promote intergenerational relationships in many ways! Some of them include our monthly Story Corner and holiday events, such as Easter egg hunts and Halloween trick-or-treating. These events always bring smiles to our residents’ faces. Having several high school age servers and younger staff members, our older adults also enjoy connecting with them. Intergenerational relationships are special no matter the age!

They share smiles, memories, information, and more. Intergenerational relationships are so important for both parties. It provides numerous benefits for both the residents and kids involved!
Each of our communities works hard to foster intergenerational relationships and memorable experiences.
