With so many of our older adults experiencing loneliness and isolation, an idea was born to put a preschool within a nursing home.
At Providence Mount St. Vincent in Seattle, there are more than 400 residents. Statistics show that in the next 25 years the amount of senior citizens will double.
What a brilliant idea to incorporate young people to make friendships with the older creating friendships and learning lessons they would get nowhere else.
The beautiful clip showing the pure joy on the faces of both the young and old show what a perfect environment it is for both. Their interaction is absolutely precious and we hope this idea can spread across our country. The impact of it can likely be more far reaching than we could ever imagine!
