Multi Generations living together- Care for your Elders

Our family now has four generations living in two households just a few streets apart. We moved my Mom and her cat from Florida to be with us so she could spend more time with family and we could actively assist with her care as she grows older. We just completed an addition to our home that is a private studio apartment so she can continue to live independently and we have some privacy too. We added features like lights and faucets on timers since she is prone to forgetting to turning them... continue reading
