Rethinking65 quoted Paul Irving on the benefits of intergenerational living versus homogenous, age-restricted retirement communities. “What kind of society are we building — a society that encourages understanding and collaboration and appreciation of others, or a society that reinforces the divides that already challenge America? … I would make the case that bringing older and younger Americans together enhances the lives of both age groups, and in the mix, increases the likelihood of collaboration, mutual understanding and appreciation,” Irving said.
