MISSION: The mission of the Adam and Matan Adelson Multigenerational Program is to create, implement and promote meaningful interactions and relationships between residents at Hebrew SeniorLife (HSL) and youth in the Greater Boston area. The Multigenerational Program initiatives will be designed to enrich quality of life for HSL residents across the continuum of care and in our housing sites. This work will support HSL’s efforts to positively impact the community at large, helping youth develop life-long compassion and commitment to the well- being of a growing senior population.
NewBridge has built a vibrant program to connect residents across the campus with students at the nearby Rashi School as well as the Dedham Public Schools, other private schools, universities and youth oriented non-profit organizations. There are a wide array of opportunities for residents to share their experiences and knowledge with students, and to celebrate life and learning through music, arts, Jewish tradition, and of course, food!
