What are some advantages of ADU's?
Privacy and caregiving
An ADU can enable family members to live on the same property while having their own living spaces — or provide housing for a hired caregiver. In this way, ADUs can be an affordable and more comforting alternative to an assisted-living facility or nursing home.
For older adult homeowners looking to downsize, an ADU can be a more appealing option than moving into an apartment or an age-restricted community.
Safety and independence
A new or renovated dwelling can be designed in a way that allows comfortable and safe living for many years, with universal or accessible design. Find out more here: senior design list link
Moving to a long-term care facility such as assisted living or nursing care can cost $50,000 - $100,000 each year. Delaying that move, even for two to three years, can save a lot of money. Plus, while delaying a move to an institutional care setting, older adults are able to remain in an actual home!
