Joining Generations imagines a world where all generations benefit, learn from, come to understand and inspire each other. We strive to build a world where the bonds between generations are strong and unified. We truly believe we are taking small steps in the right direction to improve multi-generational relationships and to encourage more people to give back, spread love, and strengthen their community.
Having access to meaningful engagement opportunities each day is unfortunately not
something that all older adults can count on. Joining Generations seeks to ensure that fun,
hope and social connection are a part of the lives of all the seniors we serve. We believe that
helping to provide that connection has a real medical, social and cognitive benefit.
Studies have shown that older adults who suffer from depression and isolation have a higher
mortality rate than those more satisfied with their lives and relationships, making social
engagement just as important as other steps to maintain physical and emotional health.
“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
