Constantly worried about your delightfully independent yet aging parent?
This can feel like a big problem because it might seem like there’s no way to keep mom or dad safe and happy without curtailing their independence.
We know it can be very disheartening when it feels like every option available from nursing homes to sharing your home will cramp their style, and they will probably resist the whole way!
ECHO Cottages are unique because they are the only option that can help you bring your parent close, but not too close.
How to put the worry to rest for good
It can be so difficult to watch your once invincible parent start to struggle with daily living. Bill pay, medications, keeping up with a large garden or yard can start to become sources of frustration angst for your parent, which in turn makes you feel so worried and often helpless.
It can be downright painful to watch your proud parent feel humiliated and despondent at keeping up with things they once did without a blink of an eye.
You start to realize that you have to do something… but many of the possible solutions seem just as bad… putting mom or dad in a nursing home sounds just awful – they will probably refuse to go anyway! And moving them into your home? You’ll both drive each other bananas!!! And mom or dad would really miss their hobbies, like gardening, cooking, or watching golf turned to max volume every evening. And what about their pet they are so attached to?
You could build a guest house on your property for mom or dad, but that would get so expensive! Your taxes would go up permanently, and your town would probably never approve a kitchen.
But it’s getting so difficult to juggle checking up on mom or dad with your siblings… arguing about the best way to take care of mom or dad makes things even worse.
Even a half an hour drive to check on mom or dad can really start to pack on the stress when you have to do it 1, 2 or even 4 or 5 times a week.
Imagine what it would be like if there was a way to help mom or dad manage their day-to-day tasks without greatly inconveniencing yourself or your siblings. Imagine if mom or dad could have some assistance and support without giving up their belongings, hobbies, and interests.
We’ve found a way for mom or dad to enjoy their golden years despite the realities of getting older, allowing you and your siblings to stop worrying and instead actually cherish your time with your parents once again.
That’s really what ECHO Cottages is all about.
Welcome, I’m Bob Novak. I created ECHO Cottages together with my dad Bill Novak Sr. so that our aging parents can live out their lives in happiness and dignity.
Prior to founding ECHO Cottages, I spent the last 40 years building over 1000+ custom homes, treating each with one meticulous care and detail.
