Intergenerational Activities at the Lutheran Home at kane, Pennsylvania

Posted: April 10, 2013

[Linda Carlson, CEO/Administrator] During the holiday season, the Lutheran Home at Kane is very fortunate to have a special program “Presents for Patients.” The Kane Area School District, clubs, organizations, businesses and others visit our residents with a special visit. Our Day Care Learning Center and After School Program participate by entertaining and enjoying visits from Santa with the residents.

The school bus arrives and the halls fill with children and everyone finds out that it isn’t about the gift, but about the visit. The joy of sharing time has given the children an opportunity to understand aging and disabilities, while the residents can share “Life” stories that give the children special memories.
