Why should seniors spend time in a cold hospital environment far from their families when they could be in a cold hospital environment within sight of their families? (3:32)

>> WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY, THANKS, FOLKS.

NATION, THE NETWORK HAS INFORMED ME TIME AND AGAIN OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THE 18 TO 34-YEAR-OLD DEMOGRAPHIC.

SO I FIGURE APPEALING TO THE 68 TO 94-YEAR-OLD MUST BE THREE TIMES AS IMPORTANT.

SO EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I LIKE TO TAKE A MOMENT TO ADDRESS OLDER VIEWERS PERSONALLY.

THIS IS STEPHEN COLBERT'S SENIOR MOMENT.

NATION, AS YOU AGE YOU START TO FACE SOME TOUGH QUESTIONS LIKE WHY IS IT SO COLD IN HERE.

OR WHO IS TWITTER.

AND WHY DOESN'T THAT COLOURED NURSE LIKE IT WHEN I CALL HER THAT COLOURED NURSE.

BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING YOU WONDER WHERE YOU'LL SPEND YOUR GOLDEN YEARS, NURSING

HOMES CAN BE ISOLATING AND CATHERINE ZETA-JONES CAN ONLY MARRY ONE OLD MAN AT A TIME.

NOW SURE, YOUR ADULT CHILDREN COULD TAKE YOU IN BUT IF YOU LIVED IN THE BASEMENT WHERE WOULD THEY

PUT THE BUMPER POOL TABLE.

THE GRANDKIDS NEED THAT TO THROW THEIR WET COATS ON.

LUCKILY THE SOLUTION COULD BE AS CLOSE AS THE VERY LAWN YOU YELL AT KIDS TO KEEP OFF.

>> WE'RE CHECKING OUT A BUSINESS THAT MAKES GRANGE PODS THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE

CALLING THEM, LONG-TERM CARE HOUSING OPTIONS FOR THE ELDERLY.

THEY'RE PORTABLE.

THEY CAN BE SET UP RIGHT ON YOUR PROPERTY N YOUR BACKYARD IF YOU WANT.

THE UNITS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR LOVED ONES AND ARE

AN OPTION SOME SAY TO CHOOSING OVER NURSING HOMES.

>> Stephen: YES, A GRAHNEE POD.

WHY SPEND TIME IN A COLD, STERILE HOSPITAL ENVIRONMENT FAR FROM YOUR FAMILY WHEN

YOU COULD BE IN A COLD, STERILE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT WITHIN SIGHT OF YOUR FAMILY.

IN YOUR VERY OWN MEDICAL GRADE SHED.

FOR JUST $85 TO $125,000, GRAHNEE PODS OFFER A COZY 12 BY 24 FEET, ALMOST ONE/8th

OF A VOLLEYBALL COURT.

SURE IT'S SMALL BUT THINK HOW OFTEN YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER WILL VISIT ONCE SHE SEES YOU

LIVING IN A DOLL HOUSE.

AND YOU WON'T NEED A LIVE-IN NURSE BECAUSE THE GRAHNEE POD IS PACKED WITH THE ONE

THING HELDER-- ELDERLY PEOPLE LOVE MOST, TECHNOLOGY.

>> WE PUT AN AUTOMATIC DISPENSER THAT IN TURN THE CAREGIVER CAN PULL UP ON

THEIR iPAD AND THEY CAN SEE WHETHER OR NOT THEY'VE TAKEN THEIR MEDICATION.

>> NOW YOUR FAMILY CAN CHECK YOUR MEDS FROM THEIR iPAD.

IT IS MEDICAL CARE WITH ALL THE BEDSIDE MANNER OF AN AUTOMATIC CAT FEEDER.

(LAUGHTER) NOW I'M AWARE, I'M AWARE, FOLKS, NOT EVERYBODY HAS THE BACKYARD SPACE FOR A GRAHNEE POD.

THAT IS WHY TONIGHT I'M PROUD TO INTRODUCE MY NEW PRODUCT FOR BUDGET CONSCIOUS GOLDEN AGE LIVING STEPHEN

COLBERT'S PEEPAW CRATE.

IT'S A STATE OF THE ART GRANDPARENT STORAGE SOLUTION THAT IS ROOF RACK READY.

AND IT COMES WITH AN ATTACHABLE AUTOMATIC HYDRATION SYSTEM WHICH CAN BE FILLED WITH WATER AND

SURE T ON HOLIDAYS, WHISKEY SOURS.

CALL NOW AND BE SURE TO ASK THE OPERATOR ABOUT OUR OTHER ELDER CARE PRODUCTS STEPHEN

COLBERT'S-- A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
