ONE GENERATION INTERGENERATIONAL DAYCARE PROGRAM
Van Nuys, (Los Angeles area) California, USA.
"...we added a child care program. This highlighted our commitment to intergenerational (adult daycare and childcare in a shared setting) services and programs that intertwine human needs for both giving and receiving in meaningful, daily contact. This philosophy has become our guiding value, as well as what is unique and most highly celebrated at ONEgeneration."
The ONE Generation Program is a pioneer and national model with national accreditation for intergenerational care.
ONE Generation helps a wide range of people through with intergenerational services including:
Homebound and frail elderly
Those with Alzheimer's Disease or other forms of dementia
