Because You Care.
Because you know that many of the facilities available today don’t offer the quality of life that your loved one deserves. It is widely understood that elders that are able to remain with family are happier and healthier than those living in a care facility. Unfortunately however, in the U.S., multi-generational homes are not common and the dynamics created by this type of arrangement can cause a great deal of anxiety for everyone involved. Additionally, many homes have stairs and other obstacles that make it difficult for a senior to move around safely. An Elder Cottage provides a safe and secure home designed specifically for seniors, combining the dignity of privacy with the proximity of loving care.
Because Assisted Living Facilities Are Expensive.
The average cost for Assisted Living in this region is $3,100 per month. The average turn-key cost of an Elder Cottage is less than what it would cost for two years of assisted living care. It’s also an asset that can be re-sold when the need is no longer there or used to generate rental income (subject to local zoning allowances).
Because It’s What They Want.
According to a recent study by AARP, 95% of people over 65 years of age indicated that they wanted to stay in their own home. Elders want to “Age in Place”, to be with family, to have a pet by their side, to play with their grandkids and enjoy the outdoors. Basically they want a place to call home, a place where they can enjoy their golden years where they belong, at home and with family.
