If you’ve lived in Bloomington long enough, chances are you’ve heard of Jill’s House. But do you know about what is going on there? A new concept encouraging two groups to learn from each other and share their spirits. Can’t go wrong with that, right? What started as a place for families to stay during cancer treatment at IU Health Proton Therapy Center, now serves both young and old through their Assisted Living & Memory Care and Intergenerational Preschool. Partnering these two services brings generations together to foster tolerance, acceptance, empathy and a love for learning. Did you know Jill’s House Bloomington was 1 of 5 communities in the US featured in the PBS documentary Revolutionizing Dementia Care and Bloomington has been named a Dementia Friendly City? Neither did we! Join us as we learn all about the daily life of a resident with Heather Kinderthain, Community Relations Coordinator for Jill’s House.
