A lot of retirees end up moving from their old homes. Downsizing saves money and can improve safety, an important consideration for aging in place. In some cases, it’s also a way for parents of adult children to move closer to their families. This has led to the trend of granny pods, also known as mother-in-law suites or micro houses.

What are Granny Pods?

Granny pods spin off the idea of “man caves” and “she sheds” — similarly wry names for small buildings designated for a single family member. Granny pods are a great option for aging adults who are looking to move closer to their families, but need or want to save money on housing. They are small, or “micro,” homes that are built in backyards. This grants them easy access to their adult children and grandchildren while still allowing them to live under their own roofs, which gives everybody a sense of privacy.

These granny pods can help save a lot of money because of the fact that they are much smaller than most homes. However, if you move to a granny pod, there’s a chance that you could move a lot of your possessions into the main house if space allows for it.

Granny pods are also an excellent alternative to having to decide between allowing a parent to move into your home or having to put them into a nursing home or assisted living facility. Granny pods allow parents and grandparents in need of care to retain their independence, while still giving you a chance to keep an eye on them.
