generationsunited 2017report cover''There is a growing interest among senior housing providers in intergenerational programming as a vehicle for connecting residents to the broader community, enhancing well-being for both youth and older adults, reducing ageism, and preparing an aging workforce.
This report describes the findings from a year –long study on the nature and extent of intergenerational programming in senior housing that was conducted by Generations United and LeadingAge, with support from the Retirement Research Foundation. The following implementation issues were explored:
1. Motivations for engaging in intergenerational activities and perceived benefits;
2. Partnerships;
3. Staffing;
4. Participant Engagement;
5. Activities;
6. Evaluation; and
7. Funding/Sustainability.

The report also highlights challenges and effective strategies for overcoming barriers, and identifies technical assistance needs. Finally, it includes four “Spotlights” which focus on different ways providers can integrate multigenerational activities into senior housing.
