To help us celebrate Intergenerational Awareness Month last month, we turned to the experts: Meadowood residents John and Joan Kratz, who may win the award for having the most grandchildren who are the closest to Meadowood. Their three sons, three daughters-in-law and six grandchildren all live within 12 miles of campus.
The couple has made countless memories with their grandchildren in just the five years they’ve lived here. Their six grandchildren range in age from one to 16. And there’s one on the way! “Our kids are still making children,” they joked.
Here are a few things their grandchildren love most about Meadowood:
“At Meadowood, everything is geared toward the residents and, secondarily, the families of the residents,” says John. “The team members really bend over backward to be hospitable,” he continues. “The community embraces grandchildren with open arms.”
