iGen by Happipad: Inter-generational living opportunities to connect students and seniors

ABSTRACT:
iGen by Happipad is a new service that will provide inter-generational living opportunities to student and senior residents in Kelowna. Inter-generational living is a housing model that allows students to live in the homes of seniors for below-market rent, in exchange for daily assistance with household chores. This housing model has gained popularity in Europe as a method to create affordable housing and to provide social benefits for youths and seniors. This service will be provided by Happipad, a Kelowna-based company whose mission is to provide new solutions and technology to improve the experience of housing and to build better communities.
