    We found an interesting solution to the aging in place concept.  As a Home Builder on Cape Cod, we are often asked about in-law or accessory apartments.  This can be an expensive proposition, when considering all of the code and permitting requirements for a legal apartment.  As and alternative, a company called MedCottage has come up with a 284sf self contained structure that can be moved on to your lot and contains all of the amenities needed for your aging parent.  There is a lot of data that touts the benefits of having an elderly loved one cared for by family members.
