Why You Should Consider a Multi-Generational Household

HomeWellnessWhy You Should Consider a Multi-Generational Household

When you live in a multi-generational household, this typically means that you and your children live with either your or your spouse’s parents. This might sound stressful and overwhelming at first, but it can actually be beneficial for all parties. 

Learning to focus on the benefits of living this way can help you enjoy it more.

Create an Enriching Home Life for Kids

Grandparents can teach your children a lot about values and life lessons. While you may not be at home all of the time, your or your spouse’s parents are probably retired and home more often. 

Thus, they can spend valuable time watching your children. You won’t have to hire a non-relative to watch your kids. Your children will have one or multiple constant companions to help oversee their raising. 

Take Care of Elderly Relatives

As either your or your spouse’s parents age, they may experience more health problems. Additionally, it will probably become more difficult for them to travel or complete simple errands like going grocery shopping. 

Choosing home care for elderly relatives can improve the quality of their life. When elderly relatives are living in your home, you can keep a close eye on them and monitor their health instead of having them under the care of strangers at a senior living facility. Your elderly relatives will also probably greatly appreciate living around family members that love and know them during the later years of their lives.

Save Money

Having built-in child care is only one of the ways you can save money by living in a multi-generational home. Your or your spouse’s parents probably have retirement funds, so you can combine these with your income while still only paying one mortgage. Additionally, when you live in one home, you only have to pay for the electricity, water, and other bills for one property instead of multiple. Thus, you can have greater income and fewer costs. 

When you live in a multi-generational household, this is a great opportunity to build stronger relationships within your family. Part of building strong and good relationships is creating healthy boundaries between different generations. You should make it clear that even though your or your spouse’s parents may be watching your children, you are still the parents. As parents to your children, you can still make executive decisions on how they will be raised.
