Is your home working for you or has it become too much work? If the children have moved out and stay over maybe a week at a time, maybe it is time to downsize?
I asked my husband if we could downsize into a condo. After much thought, he agreed. Our condo is three bedrooms and we made two into our offices. The key is that sofabeds work very nice when the grandchildren sleep over. Write down the key points important to you when looking for a home. What features are needed to fit your goals and physical needs?
Take a drive around the neighborhoods you like. Check the Internet websites listing open homes in that area and determine if you can afford them. Once you find a possible location, contact a realtor for assistance to view the home. Living at home is usually our first choice. However, there are times when senior retirement communities are a great option. They offer the opportunity to stay independent longer.
If you live alone, with minor health issues, a Retirement and Independent Living facility can help you stay independent for as long as possible.
