I’m excited about “Multi-gen by Design”-my new program to create a “home within a home”.
Two or three generations of adults can live in a privacy and autonomony. The arrangement strengthens the family’s culture and can provide many ancillary benefits including wealth preservation.
Today’s demographics in Maine lend themselves to new living solutions. According to a recent Genworth survey, 78% of senior adults choose to receive long term care within a private home setting.
According to another recent article, there is a lack of nurse’s aides and registered nurses which is raising the cost of facility care. Nursing home care in Maine is $300/day on average. It’s over $113,000 annually in southern Maine.
Delar General Contracting works with families creating buildable designs for existing homes. Sometimes, all that is needed are ADA compliant ramps. Other times an addition or renovation of a home makes better sense for the sake of privacy and shared independence.
