Ongoing engagement with society and having a supportive environment are important protective factors for our mental wellbeing. Through meaningful engagement with children, seniors feel valued, empowered, and have a renewed sense of purpose. This is a health-promoting measure in enhancing and maintaining senior’s functional abilities and wellbeing. To support an ongoing engagement, National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) Health’s Silver Circle Senior Care Centre (SCC) and a co-located childcare (My First Skool) in Singapore jointly developed and piloted an intergenerational (IG) collaboration programme. This paper describes the development, interventions and lessons learned from a senior care perspective.
