Elderly Parents Housing - Moved into the Same House/Duplex has Worked out Wonderfully.

by Peggy
(Lake Villa, IL Lake County)

We looked at over 100 houses to find the right one or one that we could make our own. We did know to make this arrangement work we both families needed to have our own independence, its has been 13 years now and it worked great. My brother was in need of 24 hour care and my mother was getting older, she needed help, we were a family of six with young children. We were both able to sell our houses and move into the perfect house for our situation, it was a real blessing.


Separate everything and private entrances, 1 acre of land, great schools, This home has worked perfectly, since then my brother has passed away, mom has moved closer to other family since she doesn't take care of brother anymore, and my kids are off to college. Family has changed but I will always be grateful to be there for my family and have found this home.
