This could be a senior living game-changer.
A brilliant idea in inter-generational living has blossomed into the thriving community of Bridge Meadows.
Bridge Meadows, which opened in Portland in 2011, is home to three generations of residents: low income seniors who receive discounted rent in exchange for volunteering 10 hours a week; foster children; and the families who are in the process of adopting them. There’s a grandma and grandpa or an auntie on every corner.
Old-fashioned family values have come back to life in a whole new way and it’s a very good thing for young and old alike.
Bridge Meadows is a unique multi-generational community located in the Portsmouth neighborhood of North Portland where adoptive parents, foster children, and elders – those over 55 – find a true home built with love and the shared vision of a better tomorrow.
I hope we see many creative inter-generational communities begin to bloom all across the country.
