Abstract

Intergenerational activities have many benefits for older adults and adolescents. The present study describes an intergenerational activity involving older adults and high school students co-producing a video of an experience that was meaningful to residents of a nearby aged care residence. Over two weeks, 2–4 students co-designed an engaging video with 1–2 residents, culminating in a final session where both residents and students stationary cycled while viewing the video. Valuable lessons about the complexity of the activity, materials needed, timing and locations of some activities, and the length of the program will inform a larger trial of the program.
