Multi-Gen by Design


I’m excited about “Multi-Gen by Design” – my new program to create a “home within a home”.

It used to be the tradition – multiple generations of a family sharing a home. That seems to be coming back now especially with parents that want to ‘age in place’ and young adults that can’t afford to move out. People are living longer and are looking for options as they get older. Multiple generations can live in privacy and autonomy.  The arrangement strengthens the family’s culture and can provide many ancillary benefits including wealth preservation. We can help you re-design your home to accommodate multiple generations.

Multi-generations living together.

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. We have a lot of experience in this area and look forward to helping you live comfortably in your home no matter how many generations are included.
