Well-Being with Intergenerational Experiences

At WesleyLife, we believe that by building bridges across generations, we can not only deepen interpersonal relationships but also strengthen the physical, intellectual, and spiritual well-being of all our community members.

What is intergenerational programming?

At WesleyLife, community and belonging are integral to our residents' happiness. Intergenerational programming provides a unique opportunity for younger and older age groups to form meaningful connections, pursue shared passions and interests, and develop a deeper sense of purpose.

Experience the impact firsthand.

As we age, our relationships with one another and with younger generations offer new opportunities for learning, exploration, and growth. We believe that through holistic intergenerational programming, all parties can experience the magic of creativity, storytelling, problem-solving, physical wellness, and more. Choose from a variety of programs based on your unique interests and passions.

Polk County Generations Hall

Polk County Generations Hall was created to connect individuals across generations for meaningful connections through engaging conversation, insightful and relevant programming, and opportunities to learn from one another — all designed to ease the loneliness of social isolation and foster the pursuit of joy.

Rent this 1,750-square-foot space for your next event! Generations Hall is fully equipped to meet the needs of your business meeting, off-site retreat, celebration, or private event. The hall includes full AV and Zoom capabilities, two large TVs, Wi-Fi, and an on-site kitchen.

When you support Generations Hall, you’ll feel good knowing that 100% of the proceeds benefit WesleyLife Meals on Wheels, providing much-needed meals and well-being checks to older adults and veterans. Tours of our Meals on Wheels campus, including our hydroponic farm, are also available for your group.

"In any intergenerational partnership, both groups benefit. As we grow older, sometimes we feel that we're not needed as much. These residents prove time and time again that they have so much to offer."
