What happens when you put a preschool in a nursing home

A unique program in West Seattle is bringing kids from preschool and residents from a nursing home together. 

The 400 people who live at Providence Mt. St Vincent interact with the children (between 2 and 5) through music dancing, storytelling and lunch. 

The purpose is to bring together generations that can learn so much from one another but most of all to learn that the only time to be happy is now. 

The relationships that have already formed are truly special, truly touching the hearts of the elderly.

With 43% of older adults experiencing social isolation which is closely correlated with loneliness and depression, as well as mental and physical decline, this program is beneficial for many.
