I suggested to her that she research the program that matches young individuals, couples and families with elderly people in shared-living arrangements, often in the elderly peoples' home (if it is large enough). I know that at least one such program exists, but haven't been able to find a reference to it. > Hi Folks- I thought of replying individually to this, but maybe it is of *some* interest to the rest of you. Lutheran Social Services (I think?) in Minneapolis, or maybe also in St Paul, has a program called Share-A-Home with both a matching and ongoing followup program to increase success. I think they mostly match younger singles with older folks, but I'm not sure. I once tried to encourage my aunt to try to get something like it going in NYC, but she said she'd leave that project for someone else. If you have trouble contacting them, e-mail me.
