A new project by the Diakonischer Verein Tirol
The idea behind it: Many young students are searching for affordable housing and would offer help in exchange for it. Many elderly people have space and would like to get support in their daily lives from time to time. Why not connect them with each other?
The Diakonischer Verein Tirol arranges and looks after cross-generational housing partnerships in the Innsbruck area. To do so, we are looking for older people who are interested in offering living space, and students who are open to such a housing partnership. This "interactive" project enables the participants to use untapped resources and generates a sense of community between generations.
Guideline on housing partnerships: one squaremeter of living space in exchange for one hour of help each month (ooperating and running costs are settled separately). The accepted ancillary activities vary but do not include nursing services which require specialized knowledge.
