Van Mall Cultivates Intergenerational Relationships

Connie and granddaughter at Van MallConnie Ledwidge has been a resident of Van Mall for over 5 years. During this time, our entire community has come to know her granddaughter, Annie. Annie visits her grandmother at Van Mall at least once per month. It’s been our privilege to watch Annie grow from a 9-year-old girl playing musical chairs to a new 8th grader ready to take on the world!

“Van Mall provides activities that both Annie and I can enjoy together” – Connie Ledwidge

We know that family matters. That’s why we plan an intergenerational event each month for the whole family to enjoy! Our healthy home encourages a family environment, one where families know their loved one’s needs are being met, where they can feel free to relax and enjoy quality time together.
