They are called ‘Granny Pods’ and they are starting to replace the modern day nursing home.
MEDCottage, a company that aims to realize a vision of family-managed healthcare. The MEDCottage or ‘Granny Pod’, like the one in this video, “is a mobile, modular medical home designed to be temporarily placed on a caregiver’s property for rehabilitation and extended care. Simply stated, it’s a state-of-the-art hospital room with remote monitoring” which enables elderly or sick relatives to stay with family instead of being stuck in an impersonal senior or care facility.
There are three different models to chose from, ranging in size from around 300-600 square feet. They are connected directly to the existing utilities of the main home on the property and include everything needed for an assisted living experience.
These cottages do come with a cost, of course. The Classic, the model seen in this video, clocks in at 288 square feet and runs $53,750, per MEDCottage’s product listing. The basic model, with an extra ten square feet, is more of a studio setup (without a separate bedroom) and costs $39,625. For $61,125, you can upgrade to the Grand and get over double the square footage and have more space for caregivers.
When you think about the cost of living in a nursing home, these are not all that bad cost wise…and you own it!
Check it out, they are amazing! What do you think?
