The Benefits of Multigenerational Living
In Japan, families often have many generations living under one roof -- an arrangement called multigenerational living. Grandparents who are unable to live on their own anymore move in with their children. In turn, the oldest generation pitches in to help care for the grandchildren in the house. The culture holds a deep reverence for seniors and their love and wisdom is considered indispensable when it comes to raising the next generation. The strong community, family bonds and sense of purpose contribute to the highest life expectancy of any major country.
