A Basic Guide to the Benefits of Intergenerational Activities
Intergenerational Activities are programs designed to bring together different generations in order to share life experiences, time, love, and affection. Here at Trinity Care Adult Day Care Center in Morrow Georgia, we have seen the wonderful effects and outcomes that intergenerational activities can bring to the community and to each individual. Here are some of the benefits that Intergenerational Activities can give to everyone from young children to elderly loved ones!
- Bridging of Gaps
Nowadays, the gap between the young and the old, even the young and the younger, is becoming bigger and bigger. The fast paced modernization along with the advancement of technology has contributed a lot to these gaps. However, through intergenerational activities, we hope to bridge these gaps and remind everyone the essence of living that is shared by all no matter the age gap.
- Stronger Sense of community
Through intergenerational activities, the bond and connection between the youth and the older adults in the community is strengthened because of the support and cooperation of everyone in the community. The sense of camaraderie that is brought up by helping and sharing with each other is strengthened. The connection that is built up through intergenerational activities makes the community better in all aspects.
- The Reciprocity of Support
There has been a harmonious pattern to life wherein children are nurtured by adults, adults provide care for older adults and older adults help the adults by teaching them and sharing their experiences and also by helping in taking care of the children. This connection and support is further emphasized and strengthened through intergenerational activities and programs.
- Offers A Broad Learning Experience
Being with people besides yourself is always an opportunity to learn. With intergenerational activities, there are endless opportunities and resources to learn from. The back-and-forth sharing of the generations with each other lets them in on the experiences and knowledge that each other has acquired in their time which is a key to bridging the gaps of each generation.
