Now You Can Have a Nursing Home for Your Aging Parents Right in Your Backyard

One of our world’s biggest financial, social, and familial challenges right now is that of the “sandwich generation,” those individuals in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s tasked not only with raising children but caring for their aging parents. If you’re somebody in this demographic – or if you know you’re going to be one day – you know that one of the most vital decisions you have to make is where your parents are going to live when they can no longer live on their own.

Having them nearby is often ideal, but at the same time, everybody needs their own space, especially when there are children involved. One exciting potential solution that might be able to balance the two? Med Cottages!

These elder-care-focused tiny homes – sometimes jokingly called “granny pods” – are state-of-the-art spaces that combine independent living with safe, advanced care and surveillance. David Wolfe gives us a tour of this next generation of revolutionary senior living.
