This paper investigates the perceived impact of the intergenerational component of an Ageing Well Program from the perspectives of the older adult and university student participants. An interpretative phenomenological analysis approach was used, with data being collected via semi-structured interviews. Seven older adults and six students who participated in the most recent program were interviewed. “Forming Connections,” “Getting to Know the Older Adults” and “Assisting the Students Through the Learning Process” were the key themes that emerged from the data. Ultimately, it was perceived that the inclusion of an intergenerational component was of greater benefit to the university students.
