BILOBA_House_in_BrusselsThe BILOBA house (Maison Biloba Huis) in Brussels, Belgium, aimed to offer shared solidarity-based multicultural and intergenerational accommodation integrated in the local community life and intended for independent older people from all origins. It offers about 15 individual spaces (with private kitchen, living room and bathroom) and common places to meet, cook, rest, together with a small garden. The house also includes a reception service downstairs welcoming any seniors feeling isolated and willing to spend time with others. Any other local inhabitant (of any age) are welcome to join as well.
Next to accommodation, the BILOBA project also offers other services including midday meals, household assistance, leisure activities, etc.
