Truth^^. I could not believe it but the diner near my house (Crager's) has jacked up their menu by several $$$. And the food is very marginal. Seeing such high prices everywhere, and sadly they really don't come down much (if at all) when season is over.)

LOVE this idea. LOVE new potential solutions to current problems. How to screen the young folks to protect the lederly would be the next probem to solve. Whatever we came up with would never be 100% effective, but that wouldnt stop me from trying.

Read an article in the NYTimes last week about how some seniors and younger people were dealing with high housing costs and issues of isolation/mobility...

Seniors with room who own their house or condo/apt are being matched with younger people --college students, workers who can't afford housing on their own in such high COL area-- as roommates....the older people get someone to help with issues they have trouble with like shopping, walking their dog, companionship and the younger ones get reasonable rent in exchange for sharing some of their energy and time...

There are agencies who help match and screen for suitable pairing and while the people in the article were positive about the experience as you would imagine, there does seem lot of validity and logic to doing something like that here....

There are certainly plenty of seniors in this area who have independent living arrangements--own their own home or condo... And there are singles, young and old, that might appreciate having decent living space at reduced market price...
I know that some neighborhoods/HOA might have rules about multiple families in one residence but I imagine there is relaxed rule for "live-in help"....
