Intergenerational Fall Fun!
We hear so much about intergenerational programs and the wonderful effect it has on both the young and the elderly.
Several of our high school students from Cabrini Immigrant Services (CIS) in Dobbs Ferry, NY, visited some of the residents at St. Cabrini Nursing Home. The students loved speaking with the residents and helping them create colorful wreaths. They especially enjoyed singing Happy Birthday to one of the residents who turned 102 years old that day! The residents had smiles on their faces from ear to ear. They kept remarking how wonderful, respectful, and helpful the high schoolers were.
They had such a wonderful time that the students will be visiting again in December when they will build gingerbread houses together.
