Intergenerational Seniors Residence in the Netherlands

Humanitas is one of the main social services and community building organisations in the Netherlands. It offers a range of sevices including retirement housing and care villages for older people.

Here, we feature an intergenerational project that provides free accommodation for students. In return they commit to spending at least 30 hours of their time every month with their older co-residents.

This solution enables students to access accommodation in a country where rents are very high and the residence staff to get some support in looking after seniors.
