It was one of the most heartwarming visits to date. Twice a month, students at École Viscount Alexander spend time with residents at Riverwood Square.

In February, 50 members of the school’s Me2We team arrived with arms full of homemade valentines. Each one, handcrafted and carrying a special message.

During other outings, students have worked with residents to create seasonal crafts and enjoy music or a meal.  The intergenerational connections formed benefit both students and seniors.

“The goal is building positive relationship and giving residents a lasting feeling of joy,” shared vice-principal, Tori Patzer. “Students have all taken a one-hour dementia workshop and understand that although the memory of events will fade, the feelings of happiness and comfort endure.”

 

This school/community partnership is an example of one of the many initiatives happening across Pembina Trails.  Learn more about École Viscount Alexander here.
