Intergenerational Living & Health Care is already hard at work across the country. We’re offering programs that enhance the lives of seniors and young people each and every day. And with your support, we can reach many more.
Below is a sampling of programs already in place.
In this innovative learning environment for those six weeks to eight years of age, children not only develop confidence, skills and self-esteem, they also build meaningful relationships with residents of the senior community next door, The Commons on Marice.http://iheartilc.org/
A gracious senior living community, The Commons on Marice offers 156 residences where seniors choose independent living with optional services, or assisted living with around-the-clock staffing and personal and health-related services. The Memory Center cares for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and is designed with a residential feel to familiarize residents with their surroundings to maximize independence while maintaining a safe environment.http://commonsonmarice.org/
At this senior living community, teenagers and seniors gather for a “senior prom” hosted by the local high school’s honor society. Seniors live at The Inn on Westport in 134 independent and assisted living residences in a beautiful, park-like environment.http://innonwestport.org/
At this long-term care community serving 98 older adults, residents and children work side by side to create gift packages for disadvantaged children. This is just one of the many intergenerational programs that has helped this community win several awards for its innovative care from the Montana Health Care Association.http://valleyviewestates.org/
Unlike any senior community the country, The Peaks shares its campus with the renowned Museum of Northern Arizona and with a nationally acclaimed charter high school. Residents of The Peaks tutor students at the charter school and assist in museum programs. Seniors can choose independent living at The Bungalows or in The Lodge. The Peaks also provides assisted living, progressive memory care and skilled nursing. This community was developed through a nonprofit partnership between Intergenerational Living and Health Care, the Museum of Northern Arizona and Northern Arizona Healthcare.http://thepeaks.org/
