MedCottages or “Granny Pods” are a great solution for taking care of elderly family members. I am actually quite excited about having my loved ones close, but still in their own space.
Reverend Ken Dupin invented these 12 feet by 24 feet pods that sit conveniently in any backyard and plug right up one’s existing plumbing and electrical. They allow both caregiver and senior to have their own space while still remaining connected.
These “Granny Pods” are specially built with the safety of a senior in mind. They include a small kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom all designed to safely house a senior. The bathrooms are handicap accessible with railing and safety features built in.
The kitchen includes a microwave, small refrigerator, and a pill dispenser. The microwave could be unplugged and used as a electromagnetically-insulated safe container for supplements. A BerryBreeze refrigerator purifier could be put in the small refrigerator. The pill dispenser could be filled with capsules of supplements, superfoods, and superherbs. Everything is conveniently located and safe to reach.
The safety features for these little homes are amazing. They include webcams for monitoring by family members and a padded floor! Padded floor is great on joints. Also, they protect older family members from a fall. One can be comfortable having their family member spending time in these homes.
Talk about high tech! These pods utilize small robotic features that can monitor vital signs. In addition, they can filter the air for contaminants while sending alerts reminding when to take supplements, superfoods, and superherbs. Communication is a breeze with high-tech video and text cell technology incorporated. If anything were to go wrong, these pods have alert systems to notify caregivers as well.
With three models thus far to choose from, you are sure to pick the right one for your loved one. Knowing that your family member will have a safe space that is close by is worth everything.
