WHAT IS iGenNB AND INTERGENERATIONAL LIVING?

Intergenerational living is a living arrangement between an older adult and younger adult who share a household.

The goal of iGenNB is to enhance quality of life and provide affordable housing and mentorship through connection and co-living.

iGenNB is a pilot project and research study funded by HSPP.
