Multi-generational living continues to grow in popularity. It’s no wonder, the lifestyle gives us not only practical benefits, but often provides peace-of-mind. We know, first-hand, the joy of sharing our lives and home with those we love.
For nearly ten years, my husband and I lived in attached townhomes with my parents next door. It worked well, but with the bedrooms upstairs we knew it was time to get my parents into a one-level home to lessen the risk of falls.
In addition, my father suffers from dementia. His increasing need for support ( and my mother’s need for emotional support ) led us to an even bigger family commitment. My sister and I decided to look for a property suitable for all of us. ( We have great husbands.)
Therefore, last Fall, we purchased a ViewHome in Camas with enough room for my sister and her husband, my husband and me, and our parents. Since we were all craving “Nature As Neighbors,” we left the suburbs to live in a rural location on acreage.
To say this lifestyle has brought us closer, and provided more joy in life, is an understatement. It nearly brings me to tears to write about this amazing adventure. There isn’t a day that goes without marveling at how truly fortunate we are to be together.
Our connection to nature, and plenty of “elbow room for the soul,” is critical. If you’d like to learn more about multi-generational living, and the housing options for ViewHomes of Clark County, we’d love to hear from you.
