Homeshare With Another Generation
USA – An issue seniors experience as they age is a sense of loneliness, especially as their children begin to raise their own families and their friend groups narrow. A tech solution that’s helping to solve this problem is Nesterly, a platform that facilitates a home-share program between the senior citizens and students. The co-living service matches seniors with available housing to students who need affordable accommodations as they pursue their studies. Users can post their homes and specifications to the website and chat with potential housemates until a match is found. The student-senior matching service provides elderly users with companionship to combat loneliness and an additional source of income.
