Intergenerational programs are so important to children as well as the seniors. One study reported in Childhood Education showed that children in intergenerational programs achieved higher personal and social development and reading scores than children in regular programs.
At the same time, seniors benefit too. They receive the satisfaction of giving back, mentoring and sharing special gifts with the younger generation. According to Portland State University's Gerontology Department, seniors involved in inter-generational programs had better self-image, fewer sick days, and felt better about their own familial relationships.
Help generations continue to learn and grow together at Willson House. Buy raffle tickets at the reception desk at Willson House where all baskets are on display. Call 503.585.6511 for more information.
