Intergenerational Senior Center

Oceanids Sounding Board and the Ida and Cecil Green Faculty Club present Professors Emeriti Cecil Lytle and Joel Dimsdale, MD, discussing the future of intergenerational housing at UC San Diego.

Sponsored by the UC San Diego Emeriti and Retirement Associations, small groups of senior faculty and staff have led a three-year initiative to establish a 175+/unit facility as part of the future intergenerational housing complex on UC San Diego’s East Campus.

Conceived as a public/private partnership (PPP), the UCSD Intergenerational Senior Center (ISC) is envisioned as a state-of-the art home to a stable, diverse, and engaged community of aging residents benefiting from the application of the best research-based practices in healthy aging developed here at UC San Diego and elsewhere. ISC based research results will serve to revise common cultural and medical attitudes about aging. Instead of merely managing deterioration, the ISC will promote a better social integration and medical understanding of what it means to prepare for and sustain a meaningful, productive, and healthy life. Moreover, the UC San Diego ISC should lead the shift from a historic “anti-aging” focus to an enriched appreciation of the values of lifelong learning, public service, and change.
