A Grandbuddy Program initiated by a long term care facility and an elementary school can create golden moments between two generations. When a student and an older adult first realize that the other person, once a total stranger, is now important to them, the relationship then starts to “matter”. The building of relationships do not just happen when two people are just put together. They require careful planning, time over the course of at least ten months of interaction and an understanding of one another. Stereotypes flourish under conditions of inadequate contact and knowledge reinforced through the segregation of youth and elderly. It has been proven through relationship building a positive perception of a generation can change.
