WarmY&E / A platform for sharing nursing home's housing area


With the aging of society, more and more elderly people are living in nursing homes. Many nursing homes have a large housing area and can accommodate more people to live with a little modification. Research have shown that a younger generation in the group can provide energy and reduce the likelihood of depression in the elderly.Young people face higher and higher rental costs, and many of them have social practice experience in caring for the el- derly. Therefore, combining the housing needs of young people with the companionship needs of the elderly has become a way to achieve mutually beneficial sharing.
