We love ADU’s as additional residential options for older households. I can quibble about some of the “UD” features listed here and we can see that the capital costs of ADU’s can be significant. But they are more affordable than life care communities, assisted living, and can strengthen family and community connections and allow easier unpaid caregiving. Their viability is improved with the availability of home and community based services, such as home health.
