Merging two worlds into one happy place

A nursing home in Seattle welcomes each day a group of new temporary residents– who happen to be preschoolers! That’s right: the preschool is part of the nursing home, spurring constant interaction between young children and the elderly. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Do you know of any similar programs? If so, let us know. We encourage you to take a few moments to watch this video that was produced by documentary filmmaker Evan Briggs, who is working on a film (Present Perfect) about aging in America. It shows just how satisfying it is for everyone involved to share space and experiences in this inspiring way.
