Intergenerational Halloween fun
Retirement homes and assisted living communities around the county are welcoming trick-or-treaters on Halloween.
Residents will distribute candy to kids who stop by, providing valuable social interactions for both seniors and children.
At Rose Linn, a West Linn nursing home and residential care facility, trick-or-treaters are invited to a Halloween celebration from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.
"It's our Halloween celebration from the residents and also so they can have some intergenerational therapy," said Jeanine Gianotti, Rose Linn activities director. "It's good socialization for them, and they get to feel like they're giving out candy like they used to."
Rose Linn hasn't invited the public to trick-or-treat in years, but the center is bringing it back as a fun opportunity for residents.
Rose Linn is located at 2330 Debok Road, West Linn.
