As our parents get older, people are always looking for more ways to keep them close to take care of them. Rather then putting them in a nursing home, these ‘Granny Pods’ are a perfect alternative!
These pre-fabricated and pre-equipped units can be installed in a backyard and hooked up to the existing sewer, water and power lines.
The pods can cost up to $125,000. But we think they are totally worth the money! Every unit is equipped with top-of-the-line safety features including hand railings, defibrillators, first aid supplies, and lighted floorboards.
Inside the pods are interactive video displays that can measure things like blood pressure. The basic MEDCottage is 12 by 24 feet, has vinyl siding, and double French doors to accommodate a wheelchair bound person.
I don’t know about you, but I am seriously considering buying one for myself! These things are so cool.
