Grandparents make great friends and an intergenerational exchange can be beneficial to all involved.
With this in mind, a Swiss startup has recently started a platform which brings together students and senior citizens.
The former are always searching for low-cost accommodation solutions; the latter to avoid feelings of isolation and make use of extra space.
Those with a spare room can upload a short description on the startup’s website. Interested students then call seniors directly.
The project encourages generations to learn from each other, while promoting the importance of social contact. Relieving the financial burden placed on both students and seniors is an added plus.
An engaging alternative to serviced age-appropriate living.
