The tough decision to sell the home and move in with your adult children has become an option for many.  Of course this decision has many far reaching implications reaching beyond economics. “What we’re seeing here is they don’t have confidence in what they think of as the public safety net ? a pension plan,” says Paul Taylor of the Pew Research Center. “So they are reverting to the age old private safety net, and that’s the family.” Click here to read more on this...
