NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In her new book, HIVE: The Simple Guide to Multigenerational Living: How our
"I wrote HIVE because every time I told people what I was doing in my family home, they'd say "I need to know how to do this." Or, "My boss is struggling with how to do this." I began to realize that this experiment was so much bigger than my one household," says Lisa Cini, author of HIVE and Founder of Mosaic Design Studio. "Ideally, this 'social experiment' would be so successful that it puts me out of my job designing for Alzheimer's and long-term care patients. My hope is that anyone who picks up this book will see a sustainable path to connecting with and caring for their family," adds Cini.
Hive encompasses kids in their teens, parents in their 40's, grandparents in their 70's and a 95-year old great-grandmother navigating the joys and challenges of aging in America. An Alzheimer's/Dementia diagnosis adds a layer of complexity to the experiment, yet Lisa's family resolves to keep their eldest at home as long as she's happy, safe and engaged in life. The living arrangement facilitates deep cross-generational connections and presents an opportunity to practice humor, tolerance and patience.
Lisa Cini is a 30-year veteran of interior design, committed to creating the best senior living environments and memory care homes that integrate the latest technology and tools, enabling the highest quality of life for aging adults. Her book The Future is Here Senior Living Reimagined and her website BestLivingTech.com provide curated information, best-in-class products and state-of-the-art technologies from around the world so adults can embrace aging on their own terms.
"I see our living arrangement much like a beehive, where each bee has a unique purpose that contributes to a better, stronger family life and support system for us all. As one generation learns from and leans on the next, we 'thrive in our hive'," adds Cini.
