Home additions add a lot of value to your home and prevent you from buying a larger home. One addition that deserves more discussion is in-law suites. When you want a professional to build an in-law suite into your home, many considerations come into play, including logistical and financial decisions. However, most people opt for home additions such as this for emotional reasons. They want to keep an aging loved one close to them. Today we’re going to cover the benefits of in-law suites, primarily focusing on how they can enhance the bond between you and your family and make your loved one’s life more comfortable.
If you look at the statistics, most seniors would prefer to age in place instead of going to a nursing home. When an older adult can’t live independently, it’s comforting to be around family, knowing that they’ll receive the best care. Besides looking at the statistics, you should put yourself in your loved one’s shoes and question how you would want to spend your elderly years. An in-law suite addition provides comfort, improves a person’s quality of life, and allows them to have some independence still.
Home Additions All Across the Board are Cost-Effective
Once again, having an addition installed in your home prevents you from buying a large house. If your parents or one of your in-laws are coming to live with you, you won’t have to sell your home. Plus, adding an in-law suite to your home is less expensive than paying for nursing home care. Nursing home care costs can add up over time, and the more money you can save, the better.
Holidays With Everyone Under One Roof
Traditionally, families spend holidays under the roof of a grandmother. Some families also debate over where the holidays will take place. Instead of traveling from house to house, it’s convenient to have your entire immediate family under one roof.
More Bonding with Support for the Kids
A famous proverb is that “It takes a village to raise a child.” When you have grandma or grandpa (or both!) under your roof, it can be a positive experience for the children. Kids need all of the emotional and support and guidance that they can get. Plus, if you need to step out of the house, you now don’t have to drop the kids off at their grandparents. If your goal is to help your elderly love one age comfortably, give us a call today to add more space to your home.
