Student loans, rise in the average age of first marriage, eldercare costs, and other variables contribute to the trend of multigenerational families living together.

Not to mention the time and money spent traveling to and from […]

Did you know that each year almost a quarter of a million people seek medical help for injuries that occur in the bathroom? Bathtub and shower areas account for more than two-thirds of injuries needing medical attention. It’s no wonder considering that water contributes to falls, scalding, electrical shock and drowning.
