5 Reasons why a Granny Flat is right for Elder Care…

A very common conversation around the barbecue at family gatherings these days is “What to do about the parents” or, among the elder generation, “Thought about what you’ll do when the house gets too big for you?”
Granny flats are usually a small detached or semi-detached building in a backyard which is fully independent with its own kitchen, bathroom and separate entrance.
They vary in quality from a transportable “donga” style building to custom designed micro homes built to suit the location and persons requirements
Here are 5 great reasons why a granny flat is a great way to care for the elder in your family.
