I was just reading about a type of assisted living facility that is a kind of pod people can park in their back yards for their relatives to live in with some degree of independence. It will be interesting to see how these take off. The price is reasonable, too.

I don't think I have heard about this being an alternative for seniors. I'll have to go and check it out. I would imagine in some places you would have to deal with zoning from the sound of them.

I saw an article on these pods designed for parents or other elderly people in need of assisted living for some things but who weren't ready to give up their independence. They have special floors that help protect the residents from hard falls. I think they are a great idea.

These pods sound like a great idea. The senior and the family can maintain their independence and still be close enough. I would entertain this if need be. At least I would have my own space with no unexptected intrusions.

I wonder how these assisted living pods differ from jusst a simple mobile home lots of people park on their property for their senior relative. I imagine they have specialized equipment and safety features.
