Granny Pods Reinvent Elder Care


Making decisions regarding the care of elderly relatives can be stressful. However, you may have more options than you realize–ones that can help take away a lot of that stress. One such option that is gaining popularity is the granny pod–a small, detached unit that sits in your backyard and allows the inhabitants some level of independence while you still keep an eye on them.


Nursing homes are expensive and separate housing is even more so. Then when you need to add medical care bills onto housing bills, the costs start to accumulate. Granny pods are a fairly inexpensive way to house the people you care about.


If you want to be near your elderly relatives, most of the options available to you won’t have the above benefits. You love your parents and your grandparents, and you want to be close to them. You owe it to yourself, and to them, to find a situation where you can spend as much quality time with them as possible.


Besides the emotional benefits of living near them, there are also practical benefits. You’ll be much closer if they ever need help with anything, and you won’t have to run all the way over to another house. Whenever you need to deliver anything to them, they’ll be right there.
