The Benefit of Senior Interaction

At the core of our philosophy here at St. Paul’s is the unwavering belief that a strong and happy family is instrumental to any individual’s overall health. In addition to our comprehensive senior care services, we are proud to offer an intergenerational day care program for children and seniors in the greater San Diego area. Led by our staff of highly-trained child care and elder care professionals, our intergenerational child care program is designed to facilitate social development and good old-fashioned fun by providing opportunities for seniors and children to interact through structured activities.These interactions make it possible to:

Intergenerational Program

Improve intergenerational understanding

Re-visit memories through “grandparent” type interaction

Share new learning skills and accomplishments

Provide mentoring if desired

Enhance quality of life through laughter, learning and fun

Erase stigmas and common misconceptions

Share lunch to learn from each other in a less structured setting

St. Paul’s is proud to offer one of the first intergenerational day care programs in Southern California. Intergenerational care brings together children and seniors to benefit the lives of both. Twice a day, and at lunch, the children from the Childcare Program come together with the seniors in the Senior Day Program for creative activities like reading, arts and crafts, sing-alongs, dancing and learning opportunities. When children and seniors come together to share in activities, everyone benefits. To learn more about intergenerational child care here at St. Paul’s, contact our team today!
