Backyard ‘Granny Pods’ Are The Perfect Solution For Aging Elders And Their Families


Will nursing homes soon become a thing of the past?

When a beloved member of the family reaches an age they can no longer thrive living on their own, it becomes a family’s worst nightmare to decide their fate. Should they send them to a nursing home where they are guaranteed to have assistance ‘round the clock, or should the family free up space in their busy house and hope everyone gets along underneath one roof?

Both options have their pros and cons, but perhaps there’s an even better solution than might benefit all involved.

Introducing MedCottages, or “Granny Pods”.

The backyard homes are a great solution for taking care of elderly family members. Developed by Reverend Ken Dupin, the founder of N2Care, the 12 feet by 24 feet pods sit conveniently in any backyard and plug right into the existing plumbing and electrical.

The solution is perfect for many families because it allows both the caregiver and the senior to have their own space while remaining connected.

The Lost Ways is a far-reaching book with chapters ranging from simple things like making tasty bark-bread—like people did when there was no food—to building a traditional backyard smokehouse… and many, many, many more!Watch the video:


Each pod includes a small kitchen, bedroom, and a bathroom all designed to comfortably home an elder individual. In the kitchen, you’ll find a microwave, small refrigerator, and a pill dispenser. Reports LittleThings, everything is conveniently located and safe to reach.


The bathrooms are handicap accessible with railing and safety features built in.

There’s also a bedroom with ample extra space for a live-in caregiver.


The MedCottages are perfectly equipped for senior citizens, as safety is the #1 priority. Every “granny pod” includes webcams for monitoring by family members, and there’s even a padded floor! The padded floor is great for the elderly’s joints and will also cushion them if they have an accidental fall.


In addition, each pod is equipped with small robotic features that can monitor vital signs. They also filter the air for contaminants and send alerts to the citizen to take supplements and/or prescribed pharmaceutical drugs.

Communication is easy in the granny pod with high-tech video and text cell technology available at the push of a button.


In the case of an emergency, each pod is installed with an alert system to notify caregivers help is required.

Three models are presently on the market, so there are plenty of options to pick from when securing the perfect new home for your aging relatives.
