Is Grandma Living with You?

With the current state of the economy, many households are becoming multigenerational.  In an effort to save money and keep a watchful eye on our aging parents, both mothers-in-law now live with us.

This is great!  True there is always a few stressors that arise from this accommodations but focusing on the positive, we know they are safe, we can react quicker to their needs, and they give us a hand caring for the kids or cooking delish homemade meals for us.
Right now both grandmothers are still strong and for the most part health.  But we are already observing a steady decline in agility, energy and an increase in aches / pains.

This has gotten us thinking about the day we will really have to care for them; when they no longer will be able to look after themselves.

We are definitively not the only ones.  According to the white paper The State of the Hispanic Caregiver, elderly Hispanics will triple by 2050 to 17%.  

A few other points from the paper caught our attention:

o       Hispanic caregivers are younger than their counterparts in society

o       Hispanics have higher rates of incontinence due to diabetes, Alzheimer’s, etc

o       Hispanic elders are more likely to live children or grandchildren.

Consider that not only the economy, but also out Hispanic heritage leads us into caring for our elders via these now popular multigenerational households because we are very family oriented.
