Last year, we took a look at a booming trend in multigenerational living: the in-law suite. Now, with more families staying home than ever and many sharing concerns about the health of older Americans, it's no wonder that families are getting creative when it comes to expanding the possibilities for the extended family. Hence, we're serving up some thoughts on building an in-law suite, 2020 style!
Although 90% of seniors say they'd want to remain in their own homes as they age, living alone isn't always a possibility (nor is it always recommended). However, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's time to consider assisted living facilities or nursing homes nearby. In some cases, building an in-law suite -- also known as a granny suite -- may allow your older loved one to retain their independence and privacy while remaining safe and well cared for.
