Connections & Care: Across Generations

Connections. We all need them.

Connections like University of Miami student Jennifer and her 5-year-old Buddy, Jace. Jennifer spent a year and a half alongside Jace as he fought for his life. She knew the way he liked his popcorn, the temperature he wanted his washcloth, his favorite songs, and even how to get all "7 chaos emeralds" in Sonic the Hedgehog! She laughed along with him and his parents every day, she saw them cry when he relapsed for the second time, and she was there to see his dad give the most amazing eulogy when the time came to say goodbye. Jennifer learned that being a part of someone’s journey is an amazing honor.

Connections like Ana, from the University of Texas, and her Senior Buddy, June. Through her connection with June, Ana has learned about resilience and strength. She held June's hand as she shared precious memories of her husband and friends long passed. Ana learned that small acts of kindness, like walking June’s dog, make a big difference.

When we connect across generations, great things happen.

About StudentsCare:

Since 2013, StudentsCare's Pediatric Buddy Program has provided individualized support, friendship and laughter to hospitalized children across the country. StudentsCare's Senior Buddy Program started in April 2020, in response to increased isolation among older adults in residential facilities, brought upon by the pandemic.

It takes a dedicated team of professionals to provide our students with proper training and resources to create these impactful connections. Your support makes this possible.
