2019-2020 Linking Generations’ Annual Family Meet and Greet event – Bedford Village and St. Theresa Middle 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 – Silver Birch Haven seniors and New Horizons Charter School students Play Board Games !!

board game

noun

  1. any game played on a board, especially one that involves the movement of pieces on the board, such as chess or checkers.

Playing board games, can invoke memories of our past, at any age. When the weather is cold or warm, it’s always a great time for cookies and conversation over a competitive game!

Students are from New Horizons Charter School and their linked seniors are from Silver Birch Haven.

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!
