Help keep your aging parent happy, healthy, and independent
– by bringing them close, but not too close.
Even if your parent is fiercely independent and resists change, an ECHO Cottage can make your whole family happy throughout your elderly parent’s golden years.
What makes an ECHO Cottage the ideal elder care solution?
We’ve thought of everything that matters to you and your family
ECHO Cottages was founded as a passion project
In 1973, at the age of 19, along with his older brother Bill Jr., Bob built his first home. This venture marked the beginning of Wilro Construction, a company that continues to build custom homes in the Hudson Valley, NY to this day.
Over 40 years and 800 homes later, in 2011, Bob teamed up with his father, Bill Novak, Sr., to establish ECHO Cottages as an alternative backyard living space for seniors.
Bob’s passion for providing apartment-styled housing for seniors as an alternative to living in an assisted living facility or nursing home is something that he truly believes is the best way to care for your elderly ones.
As Bob puts it: “It doesn’t matter how fancy a Facility/Nursing Home is or how much you pay for it, there is no substitute for being in your own place close to your family, in your golden years.
