INFORMATION SHEET FOR THE TENANT
La Logitude is a Charity Organisation which aim it is to put in touch students, young workers or young job seekers who are looking for accommodation with an elderly person looking for some company, some help with daily tasks or extra income.
The room is always located in the apartment or home of the senior.
This intergenerational home sharing is based on human solidarity and on the willingness of friendly and altruistic people.
Our Organisation is not a real estate agency and is not about promoting a “standard” furnished rental accommodation. Home sharing with a senior gives you the opportunity to live in a comfortable and cheaper place but it also requires some commitment on your behalf. You are indeed welcome in the senior home as a guest and should always bear that in mind so that the home sharing is a positive and nice experience.
To apply, you need to fulfill the following criteria’s :
- Age between 18 up to 30 years old
- You have to be a student, young worker or job seeker

Your registration with La Logitude will be accepted as soon as your application is complete.
As soon as La Logitude finds an ederly home matching your requirements and profile, an appointment is arranged with us to finalize your application.
You will then get the chance to meet your future host and visit your accommodation. If you reach an agreement with the senior, an Occupancy Agreement and the Organisation chart will have to be signed.
