With care home costs continuing to rise, a granny annexe can prove to be a cost-effective elderly care alternative. When compared to the UK average cost for residential care, a typical iHus granny annexe will pay for itself within the first 2-3 years.
Our core granny annexe range features 30 different footprints, all of which are available with a range of finishes and options. Here are some of our most popular models for elderly care alternatives.
Buying a new product or service means doing a little bit of research, shopping around suppliers and looking for customer reviews. Buying a garden annexe is no different. Here is some advice from people who have been there, done that and got the annexe.
Mum would have had to have invested most of the money that she got from the sale of her house to get a property that had the same high standard as her annexe. And on top of that, there would have been annual service fees. We initially looked at a static caravan as an alternative but felt we wanted something a little more lifelong. That’s when we came across iHus.
When you or your relative is thinking of moving to a smaller property, a bungalow or flat are options you might consider. When iHus customer Ingrid wanted to downsize, her initial thought was to purchase a flat closer to her daughter, Donna.
“My daughter wanted me to move closer to her and it was her who proposed a granny annexe,” says Ingrid. “I’m not getting any better, I need care and she wanted to look after me, so it seemed like a good idea.”
Donna explained that when they first looked at flats and compared what they could get, an annexe provided far better value for money.
One of the key reasons for downsizing to a granny annexe is lack of companionship. Having family members nearby can provide peace of mind for everyone – keeping Mum and Dad within easy reach, but letting them enjoy their independence at the same time. It is a sociable and independent nursing home or elderly care alternative.
Releasing equity to buy a granny annexe is not only a savvy investment, but a great way to support the mental wellbeing and safety of your loved ones. However, don’t take our word for it, why not listen to real life reviews from our customers experiencing this growing lifestyle first hand…
