With the growing number of old age homes, it is becoming the matter of concern where will this all lead to. Relationships die a slow death when someone is left with no other option than to leave their parents in old age home.
Someone thought of this problem seriously and in the quest to end the nursing homes came up with this super cool idea. Want to know what it is? Well, its a Granny pod in the backyard.
This is a revolutionary cottage that is designed keeping senior citizens in mind. It promises to enable senior private care in the backyards of the family, thereby making sure the relationships are too no effected and old age people can take care of themselves.
The pods include electricity and water connected directly to the main home utilities, webcams are installed throughout the home to let families know that the resident is safe and healthy. The bathrooms are so designed that they are handicap accessible and provide a safe way for people to use them. Besides, there are cushioned floors that help prevent catastrophic injury incase, the seniors fall down.
The kitchen area has a small fridge, microwave and medication dispenser. Also, the bedroom provides enough space incase, older people require a live-in caregiver.
Te best thing about these granny pods is that these give family members more freedom that too without compromising important matters like safety and independence. Besides, the relationships don’t die a slow death as old age people in your family know that you are around.
These granny pods are helping cut down on the population density in the suburbs where lot many old age people reside in.
You will no longer have to go into the guilt trips that you have sent your parents to the old age/nursing home. Tell everybody that your granny or parents live in granny pod. So far, just three different Granny Pod models have been built.
There are lot many people who love the idea for miscellaneous good reasons of their own; one of them is not having to stay too far from their parents or other elderly people.
I really wish people understand the importance of seniors in home and go in for the granny pod in their backyard so that in the days to come there are no old age/nursing homes where senior citizens die a slow death thinking their family members don’t love them any more. Granny pods are sure to make the families happy and united!
