Working with the Elderly

  • Intergenerational Learning.


Poem by a volunteer reflecting on time with elderly in 2010:
"Elderly Affairs at PBHA helped me pave the way
quirky, humanity, love,
and impacted lives,
heart-lifting live-changing experience,
helped me to realize world is good,
has brought smiling faces,
the residents are past, present and future together.
They appreciate us."
