There have been several successful reports of integrating the elderly with children (e.g., but mixing senior centers and day-care, as this blog has covered before). But, Boston is taking that a little beyond “children”. They’ve decided to put a senior center and a high school in one building. Results so far seem fairly positive, with the groups mingling even if that hasn’t been explicitly encouraged. However, we’ll see in the long term how well senior citizens can tolerate “the youth of today”.
