Throughout the UK, there are more families than ever choosing to move in with their parents and according to research from the University of Cambridge in 2019, 6.8% of UK households are currently made up of several generations.
Taking this into consideration, there are many reasons which may be driving this sudden increase. Last month we saw that the increase on the cost of childcare meant that many families were looking to grandparents for childcare support.
However, this isn’t the only reason. Ageing population, worsening housing affordability and later household formation amongst young people are also contributing factors too.
- Forming a multigenerational household is often an individual and family choice, however, sometimes is a decision that cannot be helped. There are multiple reasons for multigenerational living, however, here are the most prevalent.
- Financial Stability – Baby boomers are currently financially secure and therefore are able to offer their parents a place to live in their old age, whilst providing a home for their own children too.
- Health & Disability Issues – Currently there are 13.9 million disabled people in the UK, some may choose to move in with family members to gain access to caregivers for themselves.
Here at Trojan we understand that bathing should be an enjoyable experience for all the family, however, realise that this might not be so simple when taking the above factors into consideration.
