Opening Minds Through Art

Building Bridges Across Age & Cognitive Barriers Through Art 

Taking Interest in People

Trinity Village Care Centre was the only long-term care home selected to participate in a new pilot program through our past partnerships with Eastwood Collegiate in the Opening Minds through Art Program (OMA).

Supporting Inclusion Through Intergenerational Partnerships (SIIP) and Taking Interest in People: Intergenerational Bridges Between Youth and Those Living with Dementia (TIP-Bridge) is a 6-8 week virtual one-on-one program specifically designed for high school and college students, faculty, and People Living With Dementia (PLWD) and care partners to come together to learn from each other and participate in enjoyable activities.

This pilot is a creative way to encourage intergenerational engagement through a virtual environment.
