Contrary to popular belief, nursing homes can be very lonely places for elderly people. In fact, it is not uncommon for elderly people to experience social isolation that is associated with depression and loneliness. Many believe that a nursing home would alleviate these issues, but these feelings of depression don’t go away, in many cases they only worsen.

In the Western world, a nursing home is the most common place for seniors to go once they reach a certain age. It seems this is symptomatic of our culture, because in many other countries the elderly people live with their children and the children take care of them in their old age. They would never dream of dropping their parents off into a home just because their parents have reached a certain point in their lives where it is difficult for them to care for themselves.

In Providence Mount St. Vincent, Seattle, WA, something amazing has happened at the Inter-Generational Learning Center to ensure that the elderly people at their nursing home are happy.

They decided to put a pre-school in a nursing home. Family members and staff were all pleasantly surprised to see the huge difference it made in the lives of both the elderly and the children.

Filmmaker Evan Briggs was so impressed by the positive impact this idea had on everyone involved that he decided to document the story and make it into a film, in hopes of raising awareness about this innovative project.

When you think about it, this makes perfect sense. Children and elderly people do share a lot of similarities and have a lot to offer each other. The children provide excellent company for the seniors and can certainly brighten up their days! What do you think about this? Can you see some benefit in combining pre-schools with nursing homes more frequently? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below!

  3. Yes! I’ve worked in nursing homes and a child’s “can do anything” and “why not” attitudes together with their natural kindness and curiousity are (generally) the exact opposite to the the prevailing nursing home beaten down attitude.
    BRAVO! Great idea.
