I love the idea of tiny houses for the elderly. I’ll be there in another 15 years, and, like most people, will rely on the sale of my bigger house to pay for a smaller place I can call my own. I could improve on the design here, though. Fire your interior decorator. I wonder if he’s ever seen an older person age in place.
The bed should be fixed to the wall. Simply, that eliminates one way for confused grandma to fall out of bed.
Get rid of the bed tray. You’ve never taken care of an older person in your life if you suggest that. It’ll go flying, and then you’ll probably have to replace the mattress, if not Grandpa.
Small houses are a great idea for seniors, but this is not the design I would go with.
Placing the bed against the wall makes it harder for grandma or her caregiver to make the bed, and reduces access for caregivers. If grandma is a fall risk, she’ll have rails on her bed. The breakfast tray is just “staging” for pix. As a caregiver of 12 years to elderly parents (one with Alzheimer’s), I think this is a pretty good design, especially the bathroom. My only question would be, “Where’s the clothes closet?”
