What is a Home Care Suite?
The Home Care Suite is a custom cottage built in a family's back yard. Our buildings are designed for elderly living with a focus on accessibility. As an alternative to an expensive assisted living facility or living alone, the Home Care Suite will allow you to save money and enjoy a better quality of life, surrounded by the ones you love. Home Care Suites are built exclusively in the Tampa Bay region.
A Family Business
Home Care Suites was co-founded by father-son team, Henry Moseley Jr. and Henry Mosely III in South Tampa, Florida.
Henry Jr. has been in the construction industry for over 25 years, where he serves as President and CEO of Goldsborough Construction, a general contractor that specializes in custom residential homes and historic preservation.
The idea to start Home Care Suites began when Henry was asked by his friend, a local doctor, to build a pool cabana in his backyard. The cabana received lots of use over the years, serving as a pool cabana, a children's game room and a workout room.
One day, the doctor's grandmother, who lived in Lakeland, FL fell down and was injured, and it was decided that she could no longer live alone. She tried living with her son and dauther at their home in Lutz, but she felt she was imposing on their living space and worried about disturbing them when she woke in the middle of the night to use the restroom.
The doctor offered to have his Grandma spend occasional weekends at his home, staying in his cabana, and they found that she was most happy living there. It had everything she needed: air conditioning, television, and enough living space for her belonings. She was also able to bring her dog who was blind, and was not allowed in an Assisted Living Facility.
Grandma has been living happily now in the small cottage in the backyard for 18 months. Her granddaughter is able to keep an eye on her using a video monitoring system, and bring her meals in the evening, and make sure she remembers to take her medication. Grandma spends time in the main home with the family, and the grandkids come visit her in her space as well. But she also spends a lot of time in her own space, doing the crossword puzzle, or watchig her shows on television.
Henry realized what a wonderful solution the small living structure was for his friend's grandmother, and thought that other Florida families would benefit from a space like this as well. Henry and his son began researching the concept and found that this type of "Accessory Dwelling Unit" was actually very popular abroad. In Europe, and Australia, these units are very common and they are referred to as Granny Flats, or Granny Pods.
Henry and his son decided that this solution was too great to overlook and spent the next year researching the concept and working with architects to design a custom home that would be affordable, efficient and meet the needs of elderly residents.
The Result... Home Care Suites
A custom backyard cottage designed for elderly living.
