Intergenerational Programming Embraced

Long-distance grandparents and grandchildren are common, and may result in growing tensions between young and old. The Quality of Life Department at St. Peter Villa is providing opportunities for children to learn and interact with our seniors as well as for our seniors to share their talents and enjoy being with children for meaningful experiences.

Education, friendships, and caring are main components that we are targeting as we build these relationships. Thanks to the Ks. Karen Carlson and the National Learning Center, our residents enjoyed over 15 visiting preschoolers (along with their parents) and a flash mob of ukulele players performing for the residents. These little ones handmade Valentine cards that they personally gave all in attendance.
