Best Intergenerational Communities
An intergenerational community is not just one where multiple generations reside. It is one where individuals of all ages are an integral and valued part of the setting.  This perspective is reflected in the families, structures, facilities and services that children, youth and older adults encounter in the community as well as in day-to-day interactions and relationships.
