Description

Happy Homes, Healthy People: Benefits and challenges of shared living

Abstract:
Shared living describes a living arrangement in which a host and a guest share a home, including kitchen facilities and/or a bathroom. This housing model has gained popularity in Europe as an elegant method to create affordable housing and to provide social benefits for an aging population. In this talk, we will discuss some of the benefits and challenges of shared living as a housing model, particularly in North American society. We will highlight successful shared living models that have been employed and share some of the insights we have gained by providing a home-sharing service to Kelowna for the past year.

Presenter:
Cailan Libby
