Welcome

ONEgeneration is committed to providing programs and services to seniors and their caregivers that help keep them safe and protected.  We provide services that enable seniors to age with family, in community or independently.  We promote physical health and mental well-being, provide socialization, nutrition and access to food and resources. This is all towards the goal of keeping seniors from the tipping point of decline and avoiding or delaying preventable hospitalizations and premature loss of independence.

A continuing hallmark of ONEgeneration is our “intergenerational programming” which unites our seniors, children and young people in daily activities. The value of this caring and foundational relationship bond is widely recognized in research – it is an essential building block for enriching the lives of all.

What Does Intergenerational Mean?

Intergenerational refers to the selection and coordination of activities that enrich multiple generations. When ONEgeneration’s seniors and children join in activities, seniors recall favorite songs, games, and projects of their pasts as they share their skills, patience, and expertise with pre-schoolers. When older adults tutor young people, they bring critical one-on-one attention to the youths’ skill building, while the young people make seniors more comfortable with new technologies. This reciprocity builds mutual respect and a sense of community, providing children and adults with diverse role models. The extraordinary relationships formed last throughout our participants’ lives.
