It’s always tough to move away from ageing parents and living with the fear that if you’re not looking after them in their old-age, you may miss out on a chance to help them when they really need it. Many people turn to nursing homes for help when parents get to a specific age, but in America there is now another solution – Granny Pods. These pods are fully equipped with the necessary technology and amenities needed for old-aged citizens to live comfortably. The best part is that these pods can be fixed right into the backyards of the caregiver. The basic Granny Pod is 12 by 24 feet and has double French doors to accommodate those who are wheelchair bound as well. The size of the house may sound small, but it’s fully furnished to meet every need and is made keeping safety and security in mind. Builders say that each unit comes with defibrillators, hand railings, first-aid supplies and lighted floorboards.
