Intergenerational Activities

Intergenerational activities provided by the Barber National Institute's Lakeside Senior Center in Erie, PA, are activities that expose different generations to each other and nurture a positive relationship for all participants.

Seniors travel to local day care centers, preschools, and elementary schools, and students visit the seniors to participate in activities that are enjoyed by both young and old. Seniors have enjoyed performances given by students of all ages, and, in turn, have themselves performed for students. 

For more information on our day programs for seniors with developmental disabilities and how to get involved, contact Heidi McKenrick at or call her at 814-878-5920.
