“’Granny pods’ become a solution for retirees with limited budgets,” by Katie Young, CNBC
“The 67-year-old retiree was living alone in Wyoming, and had grown tired of cold winters. She wanted to be closer to her family in Oakland, California. Not ready to give up her independence entirely by sharing a roof with family — but also unable to purchase another property thanks in part to the Bay Area’s notoriously high cost of housing — Baldwin decided to look no further than the backyard. Her answer was to build a 400-square-foot ‘granny pod.’”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Could double as a boomerang-kid-pod until Grandma’s ready.
