Studies show that active and engaged older adults remain in better health. Children benefit too, by developing skills, values and a sense of empowerment, leadership and citizenship. At Gilman Healthcare Center we are actively engaged in Intergenerational Programing.
- Deb Talbert’s 2nd grade class at Iroquois West made our holiday decorations that hung on the resident’s doors and throughout the facility.
- Gilman Healthcare Center participates in a Pen Pal program throughout the year, where the kids and residents exchange letters and cards during holidays. The students come out and read books to our residents too.
We look forward to welcoming them soon as they have scheduled their end of year field trip to visit our residents.
