Intergenerational Positive Effects

Intergenerational Positive Effects

Benefits of Intergenerational Activities for Seniors
Intergenerational volunteering helps keep older generations active. Elder adults who volunteer with children regularly burned 20% more calories per week, relied less on canes, had fewer falls and exhibited better memory than their peers.

Adults experiencing dementia and other cognitive impairments have more positive effects during interactions with children than they did during non-generational activities.

Health benefits seem to be plentiful for senior volunteers. Nationalservice.gov reports that volunteering keeps older adults healthier. A study noted that Senior Corps volunteers self-rated their health better than those who did not volunteer. They also reported significantly less depression and feelings of isolation. 

88% of older adults reported less feelings of isolation after two years.
84% reported better or more stable health.
78% said they felt less depressed two years later.
71% reported an improvement in their companionship status.
32% reported improved health after two years
Many older adults seek to work with youths. In fact, 45% of retirees say they want to work with young people. And it’s not just to share what they know. Older adults learn new innovations and technologies from their younger counterparts.

Eleanor's Story
Importance of Holidays for Seniors

The holidays provide a time to take a break, slow down, and reflect on what has happened during the year. Seniors can also reflect on what they are looking forward to in the year ahead, what they are thankful for, or what else they want to accomplish during retirement.
