Intergenerational Friendships

"When you find the right person, age doesn’t matter."

Intergenerational relationships are not a thing of the past. They are actually alive and well in North America. There is good coverage of the many people who work and volunteer helping seniors. However, reports like this one out of Tennessee show that women developing friendships across generations can create a future not possible without intergenerational collaboration. Common interests, mutual respect, and caring are the foundations for invaluable friendships like these: relationships that cross the generation gap, embrace differences and accept each person as they are.
