  • 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.
  • Downsizing
    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
  • Saving money
    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!
  • Rental income
    Where allowed, an ADU can provide rental income to homeowners who rent out their ADU or move into their ADU and rent out their primary dwelling. This rental income can help homeowners cover mortgage payments, increased property taxes, or simply make ends meet. This can be especially useful for older people on fixed incomes.
