Did you know that inter-generational housing options exist in Brussels? The association called 1Toit2âges offers intergenerational housing solutions, especially tailor made to mix students and elderly people. The program is matching seniors and families with students who are looking for accommodation.
This approach offers benefits to both sides – many householders and families need help around the house, companionship or extra income, while students need affordable and friendly accommodation. This is why matching young people with more senior population makes sense. It is not only a win-win, but also creates better social cohesion and contributes to long-term well-being of all generations.
