Exclusive AARP Bulletin Poll Reveals New Trends in Multigenerational Housing

  • Make a play date. Facilitate grandparent-grandchild interactions. Many times, especially when living together, grandparents and children develop special, shared interests that create bonds and positive memories.
  • Don't get caught in the middle. Often, parents are in no-man's-land trying to please the older and younger generations. You can't be expected to take care of everyone if you are running on empty. Get plenty of rest, make your time a priority and get support if you need it from a caregiving-support group.

  • Make memories. Capitalize on the opportunities you have with multiple generations in the household. Share stories, look at photos, research family history and record these things on audiotape or in a video. Have fun and treasure the time. Although multigenerational households may be an increasing trend, you can enjoy opportunities many families will never have.
