  1. This is the most beautiful show on tv. Congrats to the ABC for bringing it to out tvs. Let’s hope more aged care facilities get on board.

  2. Such a beautiful, heart warming and tear jerking show. The benefits for both children and residents are palpable. I hope it becomes the model for aged care across Australia.

  3. Truly beautiful, life is a circle and this is truly what we are seeing! We are honoured to see the wise intergrate
    The young. I am so excited my daughter doesn’t have her grand parents here in Australia and this gives
    Me joy and excitement to hopefully let me child have this here! So much love to share from both ends

  4. My son spends time with a World War 2 pilot, Harry, at a local nursing home. Skyler and Harry have a special bond from the love of aviation. Jetstar shared there story earlier this year and the story was also in the inflight magazine about a friendship of 86yrs age difference . The friendship is priceless. Both Harry and Skyler 12, share so many stories with the love of aviation .

  5. This show is truly inspirational…a wonderful idea. I hope the Federal Government take note and provide some support for rolling this out across the country. So many people, young and old, stand to benefit.

  6. I live in WA and would like to be involved in helping set up a similar activity in Perth
    There is a new aged care facility near me in Claremont just being developed with a child care unit nearby
