Parent-Child Relations throughout Life

By Karl Pillemer; Kathleen McCartney | Go to book overview

counsel. At the present time, housing is a major issue for the elderly -- particularly as they begin to need assistance with activities of daily living. At the same time that elderly parents are having difficulty remaining in homes that they own and do not want to give up, many adult children are having difficulty finding affordable housing. Perhaps elderly parents and their adult children can reduce both of their housing difficulties by considering coresidence as an option. We expect that future research will help to determine whether policies should be developed to facilitate this living arrangement.
