New Report Explores Intergenerational Programming in Senior Housing
On March 6, 2018 by Jodi Boyne
A new report from the LeadingAge LTSS Center and Generations United identifies the characteristics of successful intergenerational programs in affordable senior housing communities, examines the implementation challenges these programs face, and offers strategies that programs can use to overcome these challenges.
Intergenerational Programming in Senior Housing: From Promise to Practice describes findings from the first phase of a two-part study. A detailed description of the study’s first phase, along with brief profiles of a diverse group of intergenerational programs, is included in the full report. A research snapshot provides an overview of the study and its findings.
Over the next year, researchers will use these initial findings to develop, test, and disseminate a toolkit designed to help affordable senior housing communities establish new intergenerational programs or improve existing programs.
