Goodbye Nursing Homes! The New Trend Is CoHousing With Friends

As people get older, they need to be cared for properly. In the United States, it is common for older people, men or women, to be put in nursing homes. Some people are in favour of this and others disagree with this practice. Depending on the level of care, it can be quite expensive. It can have an effect on families if it is done without the consent of the parent. And, it separates the elderly from loved ones. However, as times have changes, nursing homes are not the first option for some anymore. Living with friends is a viable option for some older people.

Key Takeaways:

  • As people get older, it has always been an issue for some as to where to put the elderly.
  • Some people still consider a nursing home to be a cruel place to put an older parent.
  • It is becoming more and more common for older people to live with friends.

“Luckily for us, the world is evolving, and nursing homes might be becoming a thing of the past.”
