Just read this and found it really interesting.
A few years after my husband passed, my eldest daughter (is it DD1? sorry I dont quite understand the acronyms yet) and her partner invited me to live with them, but in a little flat of my own at the bottom of their house which went out into the garden. I didn't want t impose, but knew it would mean I would get to spend lots of time with them and my lovely grandchildren (which I rarely saw before this point) and save some money, from council tax etc. (and have lots of little hands to help me with the shopping!) while still maintaining some of my independence.
It’s actually working really well for us so far. I babysit the children wherever needed and my daugher and her partner look after me really well. But reading the article sounds like people have a really hard time out of it.
Have you ever lived with multiple generations under one roof?
