Searching for interviewees / Article about UK multigenerational living for Finnish state broadcaster
Kati Pietarinen, a journalist writing a story on granny flats in the UK for the website of the national broadcasting company of Finland, YLE (https://yle.fi/).  

The story will present the phenomenon of granny flats (unknown in Finland) and analyze the reasons for families opting for multigenerational living in this kind of a setting (personal reasons, housing and care home expenses, etc.).

 

Kati is searching for a researcher for a telephone interview on multigenerational living, and also more generally about how elderly people live in the UK - for example, what share of elderly people live alone; how many live in care homes and how many with family? How has this changed in the last 50 years? How is it expected to change in the near future? How do families manage care costs? What type of families are granny flats a workable solution for? Who are typical carers? 

A few quotes will be included in the story too. If you are a researcher and interested in speaking with Kati, please contact info@britishgerontology.org
