Creating connections through art and technology
Our intergenerational projects are all about creating connections in our community, teaching older people new skills and giving children a chance to bring happiness to care home residents.
We have two intergenerational projects:
- Paint Pals, a creative project that connects older and younger people through art
- iPals, an educational project that connects older and younger people through technology
This was an amazing experience for our residents. It’s instilled conversation, enjoyment and something to look forward to. The residents have benefited from the contact with these young children and inspired them to go on and make art. Activity Coordinator, Stokeleigh Lodge Residential Home, Bristol
Alive! and the work they carry out is fantastic, not only are they teaching new skills but they are bringing young people in the home and enabling the two generations to engage positively with one another which is very inspiring to see. Care Home Manager
