Grandkids Make Life Grand roonieandcrew

If you knew grandkids would be this fun, you would have had them first, right!?


It should come as no surprise that when kids spend more time with their grandparents, everyone wins. With age, comes wisdom. Our elders have a wealth of information - just waiting to share knowledge, love and skill sets with anyone, but particularly younger relatives.


Good Housekeeping Magazine wrote an article, titled, “A New Study Says Kids Need to Spend More Time With Their Grandparents -- Another thing your mom was right about!”  You can find it here.  


Studies have shown that intergenerational interaction has many benefits - it makes kids more compassionate, patient, interested in a variety of fields, and cultivates a more positive view of the elderly in general. Kids reported learning life lessons and expanding their skill set on an interpersonal level and in a more tangible way, as well.


It might also come as no surprise that Florida has the highest percentage of senior citizens than any other state. Children who recorded spending time with their grandparent/s at least once a week reported being happier and healthier.


As seniors retire and find their homes become a bit too much for them to manage anymore, a great option is a Home Care Suite. It allows grandparents to maintain their independence by still living on their own and allows them access to interact with their grandchildren. Grandparents and grandchildren are able to grow their relationship with weekly dates, as well as pass down wisdom learned from a life well lived.
