There is a trend toward families being scattered farther apart. Many young families are continually on the move. More senior adults are living in retirement communities instead of with their family. Young children do not have the opportunity to interact with their grandparents or other senior adults. The senior adults living in retirement facilities may never have the opportunity to interact with young children. Intergenerational programming helps fill what is missing from young children's lives. By using intergenerational programming that is well planned, it benefits both young children and senior adults in our society as they interact in positive ways.
