Intergenerational living as an alternative to “aging in loneliness” (VIDEO)


Candy Ho is a tireless advocate for intergenerational living; a living arrangement where  grandparents, parents and their grandkids live under the same roof. While common practice in many cultures, intergenerational living is now being introduced into housing developments as an alternative to traditional “old folks homes”.

The ultimate goal of intergenerational aging is to offers elders more a choice when it comes to their quality of life, particularly in their twilight years. To learn more, view Candy’s Public Salon presentation below.
