The Adult Health and Development Program is an intergenerational program designed to promote health in older adults (those 55+). College students work one-on-one with older adults from the local community. An individualized program is designed to meet each program participant's unique needs. The program develops a sense of positive health and well-being in the older adult and promotes a sense of community on a broader scale.
