Tips for Multigenerational Living

I was pleased to be included as an expert in a recent NBC Nightly News three-part series on caregiving. The series culminated in a segment in which I was interviewed about multigenerational living.

After many years of working with multigenerational families, and now that I, too, live in a multigenerational household with my parents and their live-in caregiver, I’ve learned a lot. Here’s a roundup of my tips for those of you in similar situations – or those of you contemplating moving in with family members.

Check out my column, When Generations Share Space and my other multigenerational living posts for more background and tips!
