There are many reasons for family members to move in together, to care for grandpa, or grandma, to help out those who have become disabled, to share the caregiving duties, etc. Are you living with other family members to help them out? Does it make it affordable and easier for everyone? Or, are there some real problems created by this living arrangement?
