More than just insulating you House you should also consider making it disability friendly. Particularly if you’re building a new one versus buying an existing one. It’s easier and cheaper while building to put in wider doors to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers than to refurbish an existing home. Likewise with lower light switches and higher power outlets (that can be more easily reached from a wheelchair) Entryways That are level with the outside so that wheelchairs can roll in easily, no carpeting for the same reason, etc.

I grew up in a large family despite being an only child. We lived as a multigenerational family and were there in the house to take care of my grandparents on Mama’s side. With any luck at all, that’s the way I’ll age out as well; among family: the way it should be.

I can afford the wage subsidies to hire assistance so I can live comfortably in my own home.
I'll guess that I am acrruing equity in the house faster than I am paying for nice people to help me.
Just how long this will last, I don't know.

As I have said, I've recently been given a second chance at good health so I have only hindsight.
