Welcome to the
Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness
The Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness (Generations Center) is founded on the belief that how we care for older adults defines our community, and that sound intergenerational relationships, created through meaningful moments of human connection, help our community thrive.
- Through creativity and the arts we can pass on traditions, celebrate cultures, and tell the stories that invite us to remember our past and build our future together.
- Our equity-based focus on health and wellness will help seniors age with dignity and live with purpose while showing younger members of our community how to anticipate aging with grace and joy.
Our goal is to build a community that celebrates the value of all people at every stage of life by fostering relationships built on empathy and understanding.
We have gathered an unprecedented 21 organizations to participate in the one-of-a-kind community space. Click below to learn more and take part in all that the Generations Center has to offer!
Together We Are Happier…
When people of all ages participate in activities together they tend to feel happier, more interested, loved, needed and have a greater sense of belonging.
Together We Are Healthier…
When older adults connect with younger people they tend to remain more active. When people with dementia connect with younger people they are often less agitated and more socially engaged and the younger people learn to feel compassion and have more positive attitudes about aging.
Together We Are Stronger…
When older adults connect with younger people they feel less isolated and lonely and younger people have greater self-esteem and increased interest in others.
