Perhaps your priorities have changed. You no longer want to spend your free time mowing the lawn. Maybe your neighbors have retired and moved on and you don’t have anything in common with the new, young neighbors. Maybe you just want to free yourself from the responsibilities of home ownership.
Or it could be that you’ve been downsizing recently and thinking seriously about the next few decades of your life. Perhaps the kids have talked to you about finding a place that’s more manageable. It could even be that some of your old colleagues have moved into a retirement community and are urging you to do the same.
Whatever your reasons for considering a move, today’s seniors want to live independently, in a community that’s safe, comfortable, engaging and, most of all, supportive.
