Hooray for Rev. Dupin, Inventor of MEDCottages

Look at what Rev. Kenneth Dupin of Salem, VA, has been up to. He invented a portable cottage that gives elderly loved ones a new home.

The occupant of a MEDCottage gets 12X24 of living space plus a built-in system to transmit vital health signs offsite to medical personnel and to family members.

Given that zoning regulations are adhered, a MEDCottage can be installed in the backyard of a single family home.

Oh, wow, we sure need SOMETHING for our elderly and disabled who live on SSI and SSDI. Thx for the links!

Thanks for alerting us to this.

It reminds me of Bucky Fuller's ideas about advanced portable housing, which were way ahead of his time.

I'm glad to see other people doing this sort of thing.
