Embracing Generations

Embracing Generations is an intergenerational program launched at Latin School of Chicago that promotes relationship building and mutual learning among students and our senior residents. This is facilitated through programming for students and seniors that focuses on areas such as health and wellness, education, creativity and socialization. Our goal is that everyone involved gets something out of Embracing Generations. We want students and residents alike to learn something new and build relationships that leave participants feeling empowered.

Lloyd Story

Resident Story: Lloyd and Marion

35 years ago, Lloyd and Marion met at a neighborhood dance in Chicago. Both from Belize, a small country in Central America, they shared common cultural interest and it didn’t take long before they got married. They spent most of their life in Chicago, but in their later years decided to move to Mississippi for retirement. However, their retirement destination became very uncomfortable, and Lloyd and Marion became very ill. So, their children moved them back to Chicago, and they found a home at GreenCastle of Morgan Park & Beverly.
