I read a report today suggesting that more grand parents, parents and children and living together under one roof to save money - is this really the case? Are things really that bad?
In the past families were there for each other and the younger generation took care of the older generation. This still holds true in some less developed countries but unfortunately is rarer in modern society which is a shame. Too many old people are stuck in institutions, rarely seeing family members. A return to families living together and helping each other would be a good thing for society in general IMO. Sadly it is unlikely to happen.Hi @Veronica
This makes perfect sense for all parties involved; there to help each other, split the bills but also having a degree of separation with the self-contained unit. When you also take into account the cost of care in older age, it is not difficult to see why more families are looking down this particular road.
