Sometimes a visit between students and seniors can change your mood for the day ! Seniors enjoy visits. Our Intergenerational Programs allow students and seniors to socialize and thus break the isolation many seniors face. Several studies published in the Journal of Health and Social Behaviour show that social isolation is often associated with cognitive decline and poorer health. In the end, when we visit with seniors, we have a positive impact on their mood and contribute much to their happiness.
