2019-2020 Linking Generations Annual Family Meet and Greet event – Chartwell Country Cottage Retirement Residence and Archbishop Jordan Catholic High School

Our Linking Generations Students and Seniors are extremely excited about this evening visit, as it gives the both participants an opportunity to introduce their ‘linked’ student or senior to their family.
This visit also allows all of us at Linking Generations to recognize how much each senior and student is an integral part of Linking Generation’s success.
Each participating student and senior can invite one parent or family member over the age of 18 years to attend this visit with them and meet their ‘linked’ partners.
The Family Meet and Greet is similar to a regular Linking Generations visit, as we all do a structured activity together plus, we have some fun!

Linking Generations Sports Day and Ice Cream Social

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!
Seniors and students enjoyed a Sports Day and impressed each other with their sport related knowledge. Some even wore their favorite team jersey/colors and hats while other shared special sport memorabilia with each other. Then, just like attending a game – everyone enjoyed ice cream sundaes!!

Linking Generations Seniors Get Their Day Brightened with a Visit From Lassie

More and more seniors are being segregated into care facilities where they feel isolated, lonely, confined and they feel they are no longer contributing members of their community.

For the few seniors that were fortunate yesterday to meet and touch Lassie; a Special Golden Doodle Therapy Dog; this puppy visit brightened their day.

We never know what it may be to draw our seniors out of the inclusion they feel, however we want to believe that Lassie made their day brighter!

Linking Generations – Celebrating Our Heritage – Lakeland Ridge Junior High and Silver Birch Manor/Lodge

Students from Lakeland Ridge Junior High and and seniors from Silver Birch Manor/Lodge.

What a special visit – looking back generations ago and studying items used in the household or the farm.

Each team discussed heritage items used years ago. Both students and seniors tried to guess what the item is, what it was used for, and how old the item is.
