Program Description


“Nowadays, older people have much less opportunity to spend time with children than they used to. It’s such a shame. This means that both generations are losing out on a very special relationship. But it doesn’t have to be that way.”

“Here at the St Monica Trust we’ve been bringing together different age groups for many years, but when we hosted the first series of Channel 4’s ‘Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds’ things went to the next level. This handy intergenerational activity guide combines all that we have learned from research and specialists across the board. Whether you live in a retirement community or care home, know someone that does or are simply interested in this fascinating subject this guide will inspire you to get involved.”
