Multigenerational living is emerging, I believe, as a result of many different factors in our society. I saw some research suggesting that it may help to solve ageism. What do you think about this concept?

This is an excellent topic that illuminates many different facets of our lives. It encompasses home and city design, familial and community bonds, valuing people across generations, and expanding multigenerational ideas into every space.
Multigenerational living, while not for every family or community, helps to combat ageism because it promotes and normalizes age diversity beyond the home. Harmonious cohabitation among generations leads to a deep understanding of one another. This translates to a better multigenerational society.
When we understand and respect each other, we can accomplish anything together.
