  1. Addressing Loneliness with Movement and Art (ALMA)
    Alive Together is a virtual program that harnesses online technologies to provide social-emotional support networks and a sense of belonging as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite intergenerational student volunteers to connect with isolated older adults by leveraging creative arts therapy techniques as a tool for increased human connection and well-being. Additionally, Alive Together supports young students by providing service-learning opportunities and beneficial intergenerational connections. Many of the young volunteers gain insight about themselves and the community by engaging with our programs. The curriculum is designed to be a 6-week evidence-based program meant to enhance connection and decrease isolation. Each session is dedicated to a different theme and discussion around topics of belonging, empathy, aging, and creative expression. This program is designed to shift negative cultural perceptions on aging, provide tools and knowledge for volunteers on effective communication (especially with older adults), and increase emotional/creative expression that promotes healthy aging for all.

  7. Canton Day Care Center at United Helpers Maplewood Facility
    Canton Day Care Center is in a unique position due to its location within the United Helpers Maplewood Facility. The children in our program are neighbors with the Maplewood residents, and we use this proximity to involve the children in an intergenerational program. Intergenerational programs strengthen communities and contribute to both a healthy aging process and the social development of children. At Canton Day Care Center we are very proud of this program, and are constantly striving to improve the experiences of the children we serve and the community around us. Keyword: Shared Site
