You can define the functions so that they have the
same value at x=5.
For example, define
f1(x)= a*(x-5)**2+b*(x-5)+c ---> f1=c at x=5
f2(x)= d*(x-5)**2+e*(x-5)+c ---> f2=c at x=5, too!
then, fit f1(x) for data set 1 and you will get a,b,c.
Using same c, you can fit f2 for data set 2 and get d and e.
Maybe, you can fit c for data set 2 again and
do the f1 with the new c again.
Iterate the procedure until (hopefully) you get a converged value for c.
I do not know if c really converges, though ;-|
