In Seattle, one nursing home does things a little differently. Five days a week, children come to the nursing home, where they join the residents for a variety of activities.
The old folks like it because living away from their families can be a boring and lonely life. Studies have shown that longterm loneliness is not healthy. So instead of sitting around all day, residents of the home get to help teach kids new things and feel the energy that they bring with them each day.

在西雅圖,有一家養老院運作有點與眾不同。一週五天裡,小朋友們來到養老院,在那裡他們參與院裡老人的各式各樣活動。
老年人很喜歡這種學習方式,因為遠離親人的生活十分無趣且孤獨。研究顯示,長期的孤獨並不健康。因此該養老院的老人並沒有整天坐著,他們反倒幫助教導小朋友新知,而且每天從他們身上得到活力。
