Trent launches Intergenerational Housing Pilot Project for seniors, students

Trent University has launched an Intergenerational Housing Pilot Project that will match older adults and students to create affordable housing and support aging in place. Trent’s Centre for Aging & Society (TCAS) has collaborated with Canada HomeShare on a pilot project that will partner seniors with postsecondary students. Students will have access to housing with a reduced rent in exchange for up to seven hours of support work, which could include running errands, companionship, or household tasks. The program aims to support aging in place while also providing affordable housing solutions to students. Canada HomeShare will ensure participants’ safety through vulnerable sector screening and safety checks, and social workers will provide ongoing support to program participants.
