When Teenage Meets Old Age
Britain is getting older. Our fastest-growing age range is 85 plus. But the number of multi-generational homes is rapidly declining. Increasingly elderly people are living in care homes and retirement villages rather than with families. As a result, a huge number of old people have little or no contact with young people. In this exciting and timely series, four young people volunteer to work as carers in a retirement village. It’s the start of an inspirational and emotional journey of discovery for both sides of the generation gap.
