It’s the final week of the intergenerational social experiment.
This week is all about forging future friendships and preparing for life after the experiment.
The challenges are based around reintegrating into the community with home visits, a trip to a Men’s Shed and a final visit to their community garden where they are met by special guest Costa dressed as a giant bee!
Costa gets the group working on a worm farm to help feed the plants.
On the final day together as a group, it’s time for everyone to present a grand performance for friends and family.
When finally the experiment’s over, it’s time for the final testing. If remarkable results are confirmed, this model of care can have real life changing benefits for Australia’s older generation, and preschool children.
