In-Law Apartments and Home Additions for Aging Parents – Carpenter, Milford

25 Apr 2014

Posted by Joseph Coupal

As homeowners near retirement, often they consider leaving their cherished homes. Perhaps they need a smaller space or a two-story home poses mobility challenges. However, oftentimes, aging adults are still able, willing and interested in living independently and in their own home. Apartment communities, or assisted living, may not be the best option for many retiring homeowners.

By making a few small changes to your home, you can turn your existing home into a home perfectly fit for your parent’s retirement. Many of these changes can be implemented for a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new home or a move. Most importantly, they allow retirees to continue to enjoy a space that feels comfortable to them.

Build an Addition

An in-law apartment provides parents with their own space while ensuring your privacy and keeping them nearby. A home addition or adding a sunroom may add the needed space for your aging parents to stay in your home. For those who live in an area with long, cold winters, adding in a small fireplace can provide economical heat.

For homeowners that simply need more space, adding a room onto the back of an existing structure or repurposing a guest bedroom can make a big difference. Manzola Carpentry can help you create extra space for seniors who want to age in their own homes.
