CanAge, in collaboration with InterGen Studio™, launched a survey in June 2021 to collect input from older
adults, youth and other stakeholders about their experiences with social isolation, their relationships with
others of varying ages and their interest in participating in intergenerational activities.
‘Intergenerational’ means ‘interactions involving different generations of people, such as older adults, adult children and grandchildren.’
We’ve put together a short summary report of the survey results, along with insights to consider when launching
an intergenerational initiative.
