InterGenerational Living

Step into the Gap with Tabitha


Tabitha is gearing up to offer the first-of-its-kind in-the-nation InterGenerational Living Community that is home to independent Seniors (55+) and health sciences Students. An intentional community where wisdom and knowledge are transferred across generations, and purposeful neighboring is the norm. Community by design, promoting Connection and Collaboration—long held Core Values of Tabitha.

Nonprofit Tabitha has a solid history of addressing gaps in the community and stepping into them—it's why Tabitha exists.

Fulfilling the common needs of Seniors and Students, in an uncommon manner, is the approach of this InterGen neighborhood. This type of community addresses three major challenges:

  1. Loneliness across generations
  2. Lack of moderately priced housing
  3. Shortage of healthcare workers

“I have seen the benefits of older generations interacting with younger people. It can become too easy for seniors to disengage with the younger generation and yet so many of us really enjoy getting to spend time with those younger than us. The fact that the Intergenerational Community will have nursing students is very exciting to me.” 

– Pat Meierhenry,  former Tabitha Hospice nurse and future resident
