In 2020, Mercy will commence a pilot of an intergenerational program whereby a classroom will be built at their Bendigo facility for teenagers to complete a semester of schooling. Popular intergenerational programs tend to focus on younger children, however this project will be aimed at teenagers aged 14 and 15, which can pose a unique set of challenges. This session will explore the ground work in place for the pilot and what led Mercy to invest in this project:
Demonstrating the value and impact of intergenerational care and benefits for all involved
Groundwork that has to go into establishing an intergenerational program
Addressing practical challenges and enabling a sustainable approach to intergenerational care
Check out the incredible speaker line-up to see who will be joining Susan.
