I enjoy your blog and wanted to send some info about a new company in the Hudson Valley (New York State) that I am helping. The company is called ECHO Cottages
LTD and they build ECHO Cottages for the senior market. ECHO stands for Elderly Cottage Housing Opportunity. ECHO Cottages LTD has developed and constructed a 400 square foot mobile unit that will provide a complete living environment for seniors who have entered a time in their life when living alone or distant from help is difficult.
The ECHO Cottage is leased and removed from the lease’s space as soon as living arrangements change. This is an affordable option to assisted living facilities which cannot be built fast enough to keep pace with the growing over 80 population, moving in to an existing room in a child’s house, or adding a costly addition to a family member’s house.
ECHO Cottages believes that in the years to come, housing for he elderly will be scarce and have a critical impact on the health and well being of families everywhere. The ECHO Cottage is placed right on the property of the host house and is hooked up to existing plumbing and electric. Safe, close to family, dignified, and affordable. The ECHO Cottage is a positive answer to what could be a difficult problem.
It would be fantastic to be a part of your blog. The ECHO Cottages are only for elderly occupants and will require documentation of need and use by the host property. New zoning laws are being put into place starting January 2013 in the Hudson Valley where ECHO Cottages LTD is based. Many towns have zoning laws already in place permitting the ECHO Cottage.
