As America gets older, many families are faced with the reality that grandma is moving in with them – permanently. The latest numbers reveal that somewhere close to 50 million people in America live in a situation where they are living with an extended family member and with the rising costs of health care, I don’t think anyone would be surprised to see those numbers rise over the coming decade.
Are you in a situation where you are considering moving junior out of his room so grandma can move in?
You may be in luck – one homebuilder has started designing solutions with this problem in mind — Lennar Homes.
Lennar Homes has recently introduced the Next Gen Casita option to some of it’s communities here in the Maricopa county area and with the number of senior citizens who already call Arizona home, don’t be surprised to see many other home builders attempt to copy this idea.
