Is Multigenerational Living On The Increase?

Multigenerational living is a concept that’s commonplace in some parts of the world, but that has fallen out of favour in countries like the UK and US.

However, there are signs that more families are embracing this concept, with adult children living with their parents for longer due to the lack of affordable housing in many parts of the UK, as well as people choosing to look after elderly relatives at home.

As an article for recently pointed out, there are a number of modifications you can make to your property to enable multigenerational living and ensure that everyone has the space that they need.

Accessibility is essential, and this can be a challenge in older properties that weren’t designed with this in mind. However, there are a few steps you can take to make your home more accessible, such as installing an accessible shower in the bathroom and even looking at how you can make the flooring in your home level.

While you might think that this is only relevant as you age, the article pointed out that having a more accessible home is also incredibly useful if someone in your family suffers an injury.

The Oldham Chronicle recently revealed that the UK is one of the most age-segregated countries in the world.

It shared how charity Cares Family has been working to bridge age gaps by putting younger people in touch with elderly members of the local community, noting that the organisation has seen a spike in the number of people joining its service to help older and younger people connect since the Covid-19 pandemic took hold.
