Aging In Place/Multi- Generational Living
People are living longer, healthier lives. There have been many advances in medicine, in exercise, and in technology that have added more years and more life to our lives. As we age, our homes have aging issues too. Many homes are out of date, their kitchens are old, the bathrooms are not as safe and now kids, more than ever, are moving back in with their families
A new choice for families
There are many reasons why. Perhaps this is your kid’s first job with a low starting salary. Or college has left your children with a big student debt that they want to pay off quickly. Often young adults just can’t afford to live on their own. Your children may want to move in because your child’s family has grown and now you want to take a bigger role. You want to give them a built-in babysitter and develop a more intimate relationship with the grandkids. You enjoy being grandma and grandpa and want see the grandchildren more and it’s easier than traveling all the time.
Stay or Go
There may be another reason to combine households. Health issues have cropped up and you can no longer maintain the home you love. This is the time of life that you want to be surrounded by a loving and supportive family.
With all of this in mind, make the easy choice-stay and call Glickman Design Remodel Build. Their craftsman and designers will help you plan a better future. We can show you how to combine households in your existing home with the addition of a mother-in-law suite creating a multi-generational home.
Building a home within a home
