Recruit a Senior and benefit

In exchange with seniors, we often hear that many of them would be happy if you could look after children from time to time.



Unfortunately most of them do not know that SilverSitting exists.

Help and tell your parents, friends and grandparents about SilverSitting and be the inspiration for some unforgettable moments in childcare!

Wir sind SilverSitting

Who we are

We are Andrea and Daniel, have a psychological and educational background and live in Frankfurt am Main. We are motivated by bright children's eyes and the gratitude of parents when their children have a great time with a great grandma or grandpa.

The origin of the idea

During a vacation together we were guests of David, 90 years old. David was an incredibly kind-hearted person and still in top shape for his age. His wife had recently passed away and he looked after us like his own grandchildren. We really enjoyed our time together. This experience, and the fact that we kept hearing about shortages in childcare from our friends, gave us the idea of SilverSitting.

Connecting generations, making children's hearts, seniors and parents happy and at the same time increasing the range of childcare available in Germany - that's what drives us!
