Would you ever do this?

I mean I know it's not always easy having mom THAT close to living to you, but if you are in a situation where mom or dad needs some assisted living, maybe you want them living in your back yard.

Introducing: The Granny Pod

The exact idea and definition from the Family Handyman says: "A granny pod is a tiny home built, or placed, on the same property as the home of someone who will look after the occupant. Having their own living space gives the senior some privacy while the proximity to the caregiver makes it easier for them to monitor their loved one's health and safety."

It's not a bad idea though if you are worried about your mom or dad, or maybe their all alone and need company more often. Or hey, maybe you need an extra babysitter. What do you think of the new concept of a granny pod?
