Łódź has Poland's 1st multi-generational home

Poland's first multi-generational home is ready for use in Łódź, central Poland, city authorities informed on Tuesday. The renovated building's tenants will be disabled persons, seniors and families with children.

Katarzyna Dyzio from the Łódź city authorities said the idea of a multi-generational home was to foster human relations. The home, consisting of two tenement buildings, is fully adapted for the disabled and aged.

"The idea of a multi-generational home (...) is to create human bonds. The two renovated buildings will house members of various social groups and generations - seniors, families with children, young people and disabled people, for whose needs the building is excellently prepared. We want the tenants' daily lives to be guided by values like mutual assistance, cooperation across age groups and openness to the needs of others," Dyzio said.

The multi-generational home has 16 flats ranging from 30 to 55 sqm. Eleven of them are adapted for the needs of the disabled.
