Intergenerational houses bring seniors, 20-somethings together

Ali Fehlhaber

Like many 19-year-olds, Carla Bieg loves hanging out with her roommates. Potentially lonely nights turn into fun-filled evenings of cooking meals together, curling up on the couch with a good movie or folding laundry while chatting about the world. Unlike other college-aged adults, however, Bieg’s roommates are nine senior citizens — as well as two college students and a middle-aged married couple.
