Older and younger generations are often living in separate spaces in our society. In this poster, I will discuss the factors that may cause such separation, the effects living alone can have on older adults, and the benefits that can result from creating relationships between the different generations through intergenerational volunteering programs. I will also address how we can bridge the gap between these generations and propose an intergenerational program that can help ease the aging process, benefit younger individuals, and create a more integrated society.
