In this day and age, it is getting more and more challenging to give our precious elderly the care and attention they need. For years they do their best to raise us, and make sure we don’t die of starvation or stupidity. In the end, don’t they deserve a little more consideration than occasional visits at a nursing home?

Introducing Med Cottages, a/k/a “Granny Pods”. These detached living quarters were designed by Reverend Ken Dupin to provide closer care and monitoring of our elderly loved ones.

They’re reminiscent of She Sheds, except they’re tailored for the elderly.

These small homes are 12 by 24 feet, and can be craned onto your property!

With a small kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom your loved has all the amenities of a traditional home. All of these are handicap accessorized and designed for maximum comfort.

They offer padded floors, ensuring both comfort and safety. Webcams are also set up in case your loved one’s condition requires off site monitoring.

Don’t forget the vitals monitoring system, air purifier, and alert system. Add all of that to the beautiful design, and you’re left with one of the most fantastic setups you could ask for.

If that didn’t motivate you enough to start planning for the future, maybe this video will help.
