Are granny flats a good retirement option?

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email mikaela.wilkes@stuff.co.nz or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

Why volunteer? “I enjoy getting to meet people from different walks of life – people I wouldn’t normally get to talk to. It’s so interesting getting to see life from a different perspective.” – Hannah⁠

With today's move to Alert Level 2 for most of Aotearoa/NZ, we would like to tell you all that the VM office will remain open and our staff will still be working from the office between 10am and 2pm every weekday.

If you would like to visit us, we do ask that you consider if you have Covid-19 symptoms or if you may have been in contact with someone who has the virus. If you have, please call or email us before coming in.

For volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations, these are the recommended guidelines:
> Virtual/online/phone volunteering is the safest option⁠.
> However, other volunteering can continue with physical distancing and health & safety precautions in place.
