Lennar Arizona’s Next Gen Casita Homes: Perfect For Elderly Parents

Of the approximately 312 million people living in America today, it is estimated that 49 million people are living with an extended family member and as the baby boomer generation gets older, it is widely expected that the number of people who have an extended family member living with them will continue to rise. When faced with choices related to caring for an elderly parent, let’s face it: having grandma move into your daughter’s bottom bunk isn’t high on anyone’s list of options. But at least one home builder is providing a revolutionary idea when building homes with an area designed to accomodate an expanded family – Lennar Homes. Lennar Homes has recently introduced the Next Gen Casita option to some of its communities in the Maricopa county area, and with the number of senior citizens who already call Arizona home, don’t be surprised to see many other home builders attempt to copy this idea.

When will this innovative and extremely pratical option come to Tucson? Lennar has in my opinion the best homes and for the best prices with so many options included that you would have to pay additional for elsewhere. I’m currently in 2006 built KB home and really want to move out of it for so many reasons! With the Next Gen Casita Home, my Dad could live with me.

I totally agree with this idea. It is about time that builders catch on to reality
of what the majority of Americans need and want as a home that is multi-
functional. I belief it gives people a power of choice on what to do with a house, if it is to share with additional family members or a Renter to help
keep overhats down or guest rooms for stay overs. I also think people want to
see concepts like this, it can be a solution for todays housing situation, which are multifold.

I am so glad this idea is finally coming to fruition. I am an interior designer here in Boynton Beach, Florida and know what this will mean to this area especially. My best friends from Boston live in a condo in Delray Beach, I think it’s Lennar, Lakes of Delray. Their 44 yr old son came back to the nest after a nasty divorce and two grandaughters later. They are on top of each other and are miserable. Their son is working during the day and going to school at night to learn a new career. This kind of homelife would make all the difference to young and old families. I would work for you anytime.
