Over 64 million Americans – about 1 in 5 – live in multigenerational households. The setup has many benefits, from easing financial burdens to improving emotional well-being, but it’s become a source of stress due to the pandemic.
Fortunately, there are resources available to help these families navigate the particular challenges they face with the spread of COVID-19.
Generations United, a national nonprofit advocating for children, youth and older adults, has an online fact sheet to help. Families will find up-to-date information on topics like good hygiene habits, talking to kids about COVID-19, self-care and details on accessing food, medication and technology.
