Go See Your Progenitors (and Your Siblings)

According to a new study, seeing family members can reduce the risk of depression in older people by 50% (and no, seeing them on Facebook doesn’t count). Of course, half a century ago, that wasn’t that big of a deal, as most families stayed together, or at least very near to each other. Also, families were bigger, so different relatives could drop by throughout the week. Now, how we handle our older relatives is a little different. The Guardian has assembled four opinions on the study showing very different perspectives. Which is yours?
