Hive: The Simple Guide to Multigenerational Living
Four generations live under one roof in Columbus, Ohio and they’ve figured out how to make it work: dividing responsibilities and chores, re-designing some physical spaces for privacy and reconfiguring others into common areas for all to gather and enjoy living together.
This tale of heartache, heroism and hope is one family’s multi-generational social experiment which encompasses kids in their teens, parents in their forties, grandparents in their seventies and a ninety-plus-year-old-great-grandmother. An Alzheimer’s/dementia diagnosis adds a layer of complexity, yet the family resolves to keep their eldest at home for as long as she’s happy, safe and engaged in life. While mastering the use of technology and new family systems, they’re also mastering the use of humor, tolerance and patience. Ultimately, that’s what makes this four-generation experiment a success.
