H. Perfect Pair: Connecting Generations Two People at a Time

Recent research shows that a third of older adults report feeling isolated, and more than two-thirds of college students reported feeling “very lonely” over the past year. This session shares the story of a national, student-run organization dedicated to changing those statistics. Leaders of “Perfect Pair” will explain how their program pairs older adults and college students so they can spend quality time together while re-engaging in shared passions and interests. Presenters will describe their extensive catalog of creative programming, which is available to pairs at no cost. Explore two of Perfect Pair’s national initiatives, which offer memory care-specific programming and connect LTBTQ+ older and younger adults. Find out how you can bring this intergenerational program to your community.
