older adults moving in with parents

Debbie Rohr lives with her husband and twin teenage sons in a well-tended three-bedroom home in Salinas.


The ranch-style house has a spacious kitchen that looks out on a yard filled with rosebushes. It's a modest but comfortable house, the type that Rohr, 52, pictured for herself at this stage of life.

She just never imagined that it would be her childhood home, a return to a bedroom where she once hung posters of Olivia Newton-John and curled up with her beloved Mrs. Beasley doll.

Driven by economic necessity — Rohr has been chronically unemployed and her husband lost his job last year — she moved her family back home with her 77-year-old mother.

At a time when the still sluggish economy has sent a flood of jobless young adults back home, older people are quietly moving in with their parents at twice the rate of their younger counterparts.

More evidence of that change that man was talking about in 2008, there's certainly not any change in peoples pockets. 13.gif
That would be awfully difficult, in fact, I can't imagine it for very long, My Dad used to say house guests are like fish, they start smelling after a few days.

This is taking place everywhere in my community including my family. My Grandmother lives with my Brother, who also houses his son, wife and two kids. My wifes two sisters plus kids and her aunt all share a house.

We are currently in Foreclosure and have decided to 'Occupy' it until they come and evict us.

People have no jobs here, its a farming town and there is no work. Some of the big Farms were foreclosed on. Its a real mess here.

The Banks are taking my Town apart one house and family at a time.

The sad part is seeing people with that hopeless look on their face and in their eyes, A lot of people turning to Government assistance just to feed the Family.

There's another ugly side to this that's never figured into the numbers.

I know three people that committed suicide last year. One was a family member.

if it's not suicide it's terrible health issues from all the worry and stress

Synchronicity happens a lot around here. The Greeks are feeling this far more than the US, but the scary thing is, there's no end in sight.
No real signs of a recovery, only the fudging of statistics to make it seem less bleak than it is.

I'm pretty outspoken against all the World Leaders because in my eyes they are not attempting to solve the problems of their people. I've come to the conclusion here lately that they don't have a solution.

This is why the current East West tensions trouble me.

I wonder to myself if they are at the point they think War would solve some problems.

There's Big Money War.

People are at the breaking point, and a foe with nothing to lose is a dangerous one for sure.
When people begin to mobilize to actually fight against tyrannical .gov policy, IE: the Bundy Ranch and now in Oklahoma, a line is being crossed, and it isn't a line drawn by TPTB.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

Gumby I'm so sorry to hear you're going through that sad2.gif what a mess. The unemployment rate is a farce. It's not so bad here but it will be, Canada is generally ~4 years behind the US. In fact I heard rumors the co. I work for will shut down in 4-5 years.
