Households have expanded to accommodate elderly parents, young adults, sons and daughters returning from military service, as well as family members experiencing life transitions such as divorce or illness. Some families want space for a nanny or caregiver. GenSmart offers a smart solution that is currently available in many of Pardee Homes’ neighborhoods.
You Need a Plan
It’s important to create some private time and space for everyone. Pardee Homes’ GenSmart Suites make it easy, with a private entrance, separate living, sleeping and eating areas, as well as possible options for laundry or kitchenette spaces, depending on the floor plan. Family members can still enjoy the benefits of sharing space and time together, but a GenSmart Suite makes it easy for everyone to “go home” in the same home.
GenSmart Suite = Choices
Depending on your needs, the GenSmart Suite may serve as an office now. Later, as a place to give a teenager – and his or her “sandwich generation” parents – a little space! And eventually, as a home for aging parents.
Many of today’s college graduates find that living at home allows them to take the unpaid or low-paying internships that could be key to future employment opportunities. Pew Research says more than one-fifth of adults ages 25 to 34 live with their parents or in other multigenerational arrangements, the highest level since the 1950s. Whatever the reason for needing a temporary place to land, the move back into the family home is simplified for everyone when the home is designed with transitions in mind.
Caring for Mom and Dad
The number of parents living with their adult children is up 60 percent from 2000. Caring for elderly parents is a loving, but often time- and energy-consuming task. GenSmart Suites allow parents to maintain independence, and the family to continue its routines—without any time spent on the road to Grandma or Grandpa’s house.
