Intergenerational Programs: The Missing Link in Today’s Aging Initiatives

Bridges Together recently published a white paper for the senior living communities and programs, synthesizing the research behind the critical need for intergeneration programs to support older adults and to prepare young adults for the future. Beyond the family and personal opportunities for young adults, many job opportunities for the next 30 years will be focused on serving an older adult consumer. For those who work in the aging field, those who are fostering age-integrated communities or programs, or those working to reframe aging, this paper shines a spotlight on intergenerational engagement’s power to enhance and multiply those efforts.
