"I really wanted Jerry to receive the therapy he needed, but in some sort of group environment that would also give him activities and social interaction throughout the day. Then one morning there it was. I was at a stoplight and saw Condell's Day Center van. I wrote down the number and called when I got home. "
- Sue Coletta, Libertyville, wife of stroke patient Jerry Coletta
In a world where the young and old very seldom have a chance to share experiences and develop relationships, Condell's Day Center for Intergenerational Care is a unique and wonderful place where elders and children six months to six years old meet daily for all kinds of activities and positive experiences.
Staffed by a team of multidisciplinary professionals composed of nurses, therapists, early childhood educators and gerontological program assistants, the Condell Day Center leads the field in providing an enriching and stimulating environment for developing life skills, gaining and maintaining independence and forming relationships between children and older adults.
