The win-win senior-student co-living program

文字-A A +A

At Yang Ming Seniors Apartment, students have fun and dance to their heart’s content, creating a lively atmosphere for resident seniors. This senior-student co-living program is a collaboration between Yang Ming Seniors Apartment and the nearby Culture University. Students give twenty hours of their time per month in exchange for low-priced accommodation at an apartment complex for the elderly. Co-living is a rewarding arrangement for both old and young, injecting fun into the lives of elderly residents and providing unrivaled low rents for students.

At welcome events for the co-living program, seniors and students get to know each other through various games like scavenger hunts, where seniors are reminded that one is never too old to learn. As part of the students’ twenty hours of service to the community, they lead seniors in singing and dancing to brighten up what would otherwise be a monotonous daily routine. It’s also a chance for youngsters to broaden their horizons by hearing about the fascinating life experiences and stories of elderly residents.

老人住宅的青銀好厝邊

學生們盡情地手舞足蹈展現活力炒熱氣氛,這裡是位在陽明山的陽明老人公寓。青銀共居是指老人公寓與鄰近的文化大學三方合作,為長者們注入年輕的活力,學生以每個月20小時的公共服務和比外面更低的價格入住,帶著爺爺奶奶們走出房間相互交流。

青銀共居的迎新活動除了認識青年鄰居之外,還帶長者們玩遊戲闖關,展現活到老學到老的精神。透過唱歌、跳舞讓長者們的生活不再只是一成不變,也幫助青年更了解這些爺爺奶奶們的生活與故事。
