An Intergenerational Vision

Vincentian’s spaces are designed to be a hive of activity where children, college students, parents, older adults, and generations of caregivers interact daily in both planned and spontaneous interactions of varying degrees. Based upon research from world-renowned experts, we seek to create intergenerational spaces that inspire intentional connections between generations, promoting engagement across the generations, where people of all ages interact physically, cognitively, and emotionally.


Following the research of Penn State University professor Dr. Matt Kaplan, Vincentian evaluates its intergenerational programming and spaces using the Five Rs: Roles, Relationships, Reciprocity, Recognition and Responsiveness.


When Vincentian Terrace Place opened in 2019, intergenerational living and programming was initiated with the LaRoche University undergraduate program. Today, six students currently live at Terrace Place rent free in exchange for spending time each week with the older adult residents. At Vincentian Schenley Gardens, an intergenerational partnership has been created with Chatham University in a similar model for graduate students. Students complete a rigorous application process to be considered for only a handful of apartment units offered at a discounted rate in exchange for committing sixteen hours a month to dedicated programming.
