I think it’s safe to say that nobody is looking forward towards getting old. But the reason so many of us dread this moment in our lives is not because we lose our looks, as some might think. It’s the loss of independence and being away from our loved ones; that’s the real source of anxiety
If you have an elderly parent or loved one, then chances are you are constantly thinking about how you can help them overcome these real issues they are experiencing. But unfortunately, there aren’t many options.
You can, of course, ask them to stay with you, but that’s not always a viable solution, especially if you don’t have a lot of space or work really long hours and you are never home. Another popular option is placing aging loved ones in a nursing home.
But what if you want to have an active role when it comes to caring for your loved ones and still grant them that sense of independence that is so important to them?
In this case, you should consider the new elder care option shown in the video below. Called “Granny pods,” these high-tech cottages are equipped just like a hospital room and they can be set up in your backyard in just a couple of days.
What’s more, they can be hooked up to the existing sewer, water, and power lines. But these cottages don’t come cheap. A single unit can cost up to $125,000, but it can turn out to be an excellent investment, considering everything that is included in the price.
