Toolkit helps assist with intergenerational programming

To promote the development and implementation of intergenerational programs, LeadingAge LTSS Center @UMass Boston in collaboration with Generations United, today releases the “Connecting Generations in Senior Housing: A Program Implementation Toolkit.

This new 82-page toolkit provides step-by-step guidance for creating intergenerational programs that can be tailored to the needs of youth and older adult participants. Building on findings of an earlier report, “From Promise to Practice: Intergenerational Programming in Senior Housing,” and research snapshot the toolkit contains provides practical information and templates to help housing providers and leaders at other organizations to plan, develop, implement, evaluate and sustain intergenerational programs. All the work is funded by grants from the Retirement Research Foundation.
