The different stages of life are many – young adult, newly marrieds, growing families, middle age…and it’s astonishing how quickly the years fly by. Author Gretchen Rubin said, “The days are long, but the years are short.” So true!
Before we know it, we find ourselves at the phase of life where we are contributing to the care of our elderly parents. Sometimes this means moving them into our home, and that can create some challenges, especially with space.
Here are a few things you’ll need to consider.
Does The House Have An Extra Bedroom? – Is it one they can easily access with enough room, especially if they have mobility or health issues and require assistance or equipment? Will it provide the privacy they need?
How About The Shared Living Area? – Is there enough seating and capacity to accommodate additional full-time residents and the things they use in their daily lives?
What Is Your Home’s Design Concept? – Is it an open floorplan or a more traditional layout? Do doorways, hallways & furniture placement allow for medical support equipment that may become necessary, with adequate maneuverability?
How About Storage Areas? – Your parents have a lifetime of memories and personal belongings. Even if they get a storage unit, is there significant closet and storage space for the things they’ll want to have on hand?
We know, it’s a lot to think about! Perhaps you’ve planned for this and have the room so it’s not a concern. Perhaps not.
We can help. We can buy your house quickly, as-is, for cash, so you can find a new home to meet your family’s changing needs.
