In this series of blogs, we will look at the entire process of building a granny annexe with Family Annexe.
How To Know If You Need A Granny Annexe?
First of all, you need to know what a granny annexe is and if building one is right for you and your family. A grant annexe is a small building, similar to a shed or grange and is built somewhere on the property. This is is why you might see a granny annexe sometimes referred to as a garden annexe.
A granny annexe is a specially designed home that is built with older and less abled people in mind. All of our granny annexes have clever and innovative designs that make for a simple, easy to use space that your loved one will easily be able to manage comfortably.
If you are not sure if your loved one needs a granny annexe then keep a lookout for a few key things. If they are struggling to climb stairs, keep their house tidy or walk or stand for a long period of time then they might need to move into a home that is more manageable.
This doesn’t mean that your loved one has to move into a care home, and if you want to care for them it doesn’t mean they have to come and live in your house. If they are still able to manage on their own, they are just struggling with a few things then granny annexe is a perfect way to care for your elderly parents at home but still allow them to keep their independence.
