RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
For generations, my family has dealt with the issue of elder care by living in multigenerational households. We have shared homes, lived in separate households near to each other, and, best of all, shared properties with accessory dwellings for our elders. Each generation has derived some benefit from our living arrangements: onsite childcare and dog-sitting for the working folks and safety and companionship for our elders. I am working on a business plan to help families explore the options for multigenerational living but to anyone interested in learning more, I recommend Sharon Niederhaus Graham's "Together Again". She has a website at www.togetheragainbook.com.
