The students are pursuing careers in senior care and were chosen to live with roomates born in a different decade.
Masonicare and Quinnipiac University tried for two years to make it happen.
And after a competitive process, senior Victoria Kozar and graduate student Joseph Huberman moved in.
“It’s been nothing short of wonderful my experience here. The friendships I’ve made are some of the best I have. The residents here I share my meals with and there's always someone to come home to,” said Kozar.
“It’s been a great experience, it's been a great honor to be a part of,” said Huberman.
The students say they learned new things daily about the value of understanding different generations.
Masonicare and Quinnipiac hope to continue their partnership long term.
