There is no greater joy than watching the faces of elders as young children enter a senior living space. Eyes light up, smiles begin to form and laughter quickly breaks out, as the youth bring their boundless energy and unbridled sense of merriment and wonder to the room.
This is especially true of our visits between the youth at the Denver Center for International Studies at Fairmont and the elders at Cedars Healthcare Center! DCIS has been partnering with Bessie’s Hope for almost a year now, and after each visit at Cedars, we think an intergenerational visit couldn’t be better than this one! They just keep getting better! The students arrive each time with stories to share, willing ears to listen, and lots of love to offer.
