Since I was a boy there has been a lingering thought in my mind that one day I have to say “farewell” to my grandpa and grandma, once they get REALLY old.
I grew up with them, and the thought that one day our family can no longer take care of them was a torment.
It just doesn’t seem right to casually detach from someone you love and grew up with. And all that while they are still alive!
However, now there may have been a solution to this problem once and for all. And what I can finally let go of is that tormenting thought of taking them to a nursing home.
MedCottages or “Granny Pods” are an excellent solution for taking care of elderly family members.
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 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 house safely 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 an 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.
There are also numerous safety features like webcams for monitoring the elderly, a padded floor which is great for joints and protects the elderly them from a fall. Talk about high tech! These pods utilize small robotic features that can monitor vital signs.
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.
There are 3 models to choose from so far so you can be sure to pick a great place for your loved one to live.
