Announcing launch of seniorscottages.com to help families of seniors provide a money-saving alternative to the monthly expense of a senior living facility. The ongoing cost of senior housing can be avoided by installing a Seniors Cottage on a family’s yard for the average cost of three months in an assisted living facility.
The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife) Senior Living Cost Survey verified the geographic-average assisted living cost was $3,550 per month (Metlife-Market-Survey-Assisted-Living-Costs.) “Consequently, rent for three months in an assisted living facility,” explains C. Alan Lewis, seniorscottages.com registered owner, “could pay for an average-size Seniors Cottage, including delivery and installation.”
“The large cost-saving advantage of a Seniors Cottage makes it a ‘no-brainer’ to invest so little for a senior to live in a cottage on a family member’s yard,” Lewis emphasizes. “Also; Seniors Cottages are an asset that can be sold if the senior needs to move, lived in by another family member, or be rented.”
A recent AARP study found: 95% of people over 65 years of age indicated they want; to be with their family, to have a pet by their side, to play with their grandkids, and to be in their own house (AARP Aging in Place: A State Survey of Livability Policies and Practices.) However; the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) excludes private housing, therefor most have structural elements that inhibit the worry-free living seniors want. “Basically what seniors want,” Lewis expresses, “is a place they can call home, where they can feel at home, where they can treasure their golden years, and where they can live thriftily right next to family care.”

The site was created by C. Alan Lewis after launching his seniorhomesbyzip.com and seniorlivingbyzip.com sites which help seniors find living facilities in the ZIP Code closest to their families. Turning 82 and living in a senior facility, Lewis learned those unable to afford senior housing rent in this economic decline need an alternative. It reminded him of the 1930’s depression when his parents built a cottage for his grandmother (a.k.a. “Granny Flats”) right on their side yard. Then in 2010, while attending his 60-year high school reunion, Lewis drove by his old home-place, and to his surprise the cottage was still there (as historic proof of the investment-value of Seniors Cottages).
