‘Granny Pods’ Now Allow Your Aging Parents to Live in Your Backyard
When we are kids, we rely on our parents for everything from food and shelter to emotional support and care. But time doesn’t stop for anyone, and it comes a time when we have to return the favor and become caretakers for our aging parents.
Recent statistics say that about 23 million Americans take care of their elderly parents. And many of these people have to choose between letting their parents live alone or moving them into a nursing home.
However, many feel that none of these options are right for them and their parents. Well, for these people, there’s now another solution that allows families to stay together while also ensuring aging parents maintain their sense of independence.
Called “Granny Pods,” these small homes help bring families closer together. That’s although not all members of the family are living under the same roof.
