What exactly is Multi-Generational Housing?
It can have a variety of definitions depending on who you ask. The US Census defines multigenerational as three or more generations living at a residence. This is usually grandparents, their kids, and their grandkids.
This trend used to be the norm, back in the early 20th century. Then it became some thing you hardly do - it seemed to be a negative if you had to live with another generation in your family.
This lifestyle can be one of necessity. Perhaps an aging parent is alone, or unable to care for themselves. Maybe a parent is lonely and can help to care for grandkids while their mom and dad are working.
These arrangements can be beneficial to everyone. It can save money, create convenience and allow generations to get to know each other better and be able to share experiences. This situation can combat loneliness and give everyone more security.
Of course, living with more than one generation requires adjustment and even patience. It may not be for everyone, but it is an option, and an option that can help to bond families and create connection.
