Junior to Senior is a nonprofit organization that partners with Greater Cleveland area senior citizen homes and assisted living communities to help build and sustain intergenerational relationships. Our goal is to create lasting reciprocal relationships between senior citizens and a “Junior” where both sides can learn from each other and grow.
Extensive research has shown that there are significant cognitive, as well as emotional and physical health benefits attached to socialization for seniors.
The benefits of this relationship for a “Junior” are also countless. A “Junior” will grow as an individual through individual and group interactions with seniors. A “Junior” will also be able to develop social skills, communication skills, and gain a lifetime’s worth of wisdom.
