With all the positives and negatives that come attached with it, intergenerational living is fast becoming the new norm for many Kiwi families.

Intergenerational living is when family members of all ages - from grandparents to young children - are living together under one roof. 

A TVNZ investigation for What's Next has examined how medical advances and longer life expectancy has influenced this, but other factors such as the rising cost of living and housing unaffordability has seen this impact multiple families.

Andrew Dickens put the message out to his listeners, and several came back with their own experiences, from German-inspired living to boarding with grandmothers.
