The Intergenerational Care Project team led by Griffith University’s researchers Dr Katrina Radford, Professor Anneke Fitzgerald and Dr Nerina Vecchio held a Q&A Open Forum (click to view the full Open Forum) on 21st August where they shared key findings on participant, workforce and economic outcomes of their study. The Project involved the development, implementation and evaluation of an intergenerational learning program in Australia involving children aged 3 to 5 years and older adults in residential care or attending day respite care services.
During the past few weeks Australian ABC TV have been broadcasting their interpretation of the TV documentary series of 4-Year-Olds in an Old People’s Home. Just like in the other countries (UK, Spain, the Netherlands) where this social experiment has been done,the public reaction in Australia has been enthusiastic.
In this clip you will see young and old discussing happiness and loneliness together.
Are you interested in bringing older adults and young children together to share knowledge, skills, values and have fun? If yes, then the TOY online course “Together Old and Young: An Intergenerational Approach” is what you are looking for!
