One of the problems we see in this country is lack of real care for the elderly.  We still actively encourage old people to be put in homes, where they sit together, usually in silence,  with very little to do, and wait to die.  One of the reasons we dispose of our elderly in this fashon is because of the tiny houses, and certainly the size of bedrooms, which are often limited.  Nowhere for Gran to live with her family, means she goes to a home, but with a little thought in planning family homes, we could keep families together, longer.

By all means let's limit the size and capacity of starter homes, but we should also encouragea better family life by accommodating the elderly with their own family.
