Dear Dave:

I would like to see more on site education for seniors in extended care. Not just shut-ins being always stuck in their residences. No, quick trips for these fine folks to be in schools with youth for say II or III hour visits. This will do both sides a world of good & make these elderly & forgotten Albertans feel useful again. It would be low cost & just two or three times a month. But it would help bridge the generation.

An Elder Field Trip As It Were,

  1. Interesting. But what type of education are you thinking about?

    1. seniors giving an oral history of their lives and students writing it down.
