At Senior Wish we think all of us appreciate the importance of personal connections in our lives.
It can be a neighbourly visit, a friend to share interests with, a kind word or thoughtful gift.
It makes us feel valued and appreciated.
The Senior Wish Association brings that attention and companionship to seniors in our communities who are isolated and lonely. In the process, their intergenerational programs are helping to change negative perceptions about aging that contribute to isolation.
When we no longer see aging in terms of decline and loss but instead, as a valuable life-long process we share in common– then all our lives become more visible and richer.
This video grew out of a volunteer writing a poem for Senior Wish and then adapting it when her son, a freelance filmmaker, volunteered his time to produce it. Together with seniors who appear in the video with the cooperation of Coleman Care Centre and Grove Park Home in Barrie - this initiative itself is a great example of the good things that come with connections across generations. Please share this video.
