Finding a place for an aging parent to live can be a challenge. A granny pod is a tiny home that you can put into your backyard elder cottages for your aging parent. These cottages are pre-fab homes that have a lot of medical equipment to make caring for your loved one easier. They come in multiple sizes allowing for different amounts of space for your parent. These cottages can be built on site depending on local zoning laws.
