Social Residences Lerichemont
Intergenerational cohabitation
Many retired Parisians live alone and have one or more rooms available in their apartments. At the same time, many young people, students, trainees and young workers are looking for affordable housing in Paris. On the basis of this observation, three Parisian associations propose to link young people looking for accommodation and seniors who are interested in company and /or additional income. According to the chosen formula, the cohabitation consists in a free provision of a furnished room against a regular presence of the young person in the evening, at night and some weekend, or a provision of a furnished room against a compensation occupancy.
