After her husband died, Elizabeth Hill of Toronto says she had trouble sleeping, so to she decided let a stranger live with her. Since then, the 75-year-old has compiled seven guest books  filled with photos and thank-you notes from the dozens of young international students who have stayed with her over the past two decades. Hill is part of a growing trend of seniors moving in with students in exchange for subsidized rent and occasional help around the house — often with the added benefit of lasting friendships.
