Workshop explores considerations for moving in aging parents

Today, more than 40 percent of Americans buying a home are shopping with older relatives in mind. There are many reasons why adult children may consider having their aging parents move in with them. Some prefer the advantages provided by intergenerational living, while others deem it necessary to provide affordable extended care.

“Bringing Parents Home,” a workshop hosted by Pierce County, will examine the factors that should be evaluated before making this move, including the parents’ caregiving needs. Participants will learn what to anticipate when parents move home and how to make necessary adjustments. This one-hour workshop is informational only but will provide attendees with examples of successful living. “Bringing Parents Home” will be offered twice in November, both online and by telephone:
