Let’s face it, we’re all getting older.
None of us look forward to it, but we’re all on the same train to Feeble.
Seniors have a lot to worry about, from becoming forgetful, to not getting around very well, to becoming forgetful.
Everything gets harder when you get older. One of those things can sometimes be change.
Time for a move
There’s a lot of good about your current house:
Chances are, that you’ve raised a family in this home of yours. If not, you’ve still lived there a long time and made many great memories. Over the years, the house has become so much more than a nicely arranged stack of bricks and sticks.
Your home has personality. It reflects you and your values. It’s a signature to your life, or at least the paper on which your signature is placed. While it might be easy to imagine living somewhere else, you find it difficult to consider anything seriously.
There’s also a few things wrong with your current house:
If you’re 55 or older, you might still feel young and your body could be perfectly healthy.
This is great!
Maybe it’s time to think about placing that reverse mortgage on your home and free up some of your equity. Before you do, consider a few other things.
Do you have a lot of stairs?
Those stairs may not be an issue now, but how well do you think the next couple decades are going to treat your body or that of your spouse? This is just something to consider.
How much house are you actually having to keep clean?
For some people, they can hire help to clean. Most of us do that chore ourselves. Wouldn’t it be much nicer if you could downsize just a little?
How much work does your yard require?
It’s nice to have a pretty yard, but homeownership goes hand in hand with hard work. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a yard that took care of itself?
Eventually, life will get more lonely.
We don’t like to think about this time, but often our health might decline before our partner’s. In an active senior community, we can have some peace of mind, knowing that our partner will have the chance to make more friends to help them cope with their loss.
A 55+ community is better.
A senior community allows you to live in your own home longer. If you wait until your body is already failing, then the extra stairs and work required to maintain your home might make your next move a nursing home.
That is not usually the place we look forward to moving next.
In a 55+ community by Leisure Villas, you can have a home with no stairs, that is wheelchair friendly, floorplan sizes that fit your preferences better, with all the yardwork and snow removal taken care of.
Best of all, you can live in a community where active adults can actively enjoy the best parts of retirement with friend their same age.
Make the change.
Don’t wait until a move is more difficult and you can no longer consider yourself an active adult. The quality of your lifestyle can be significantly improved today. Change can be a good thing—in fact, it could be the best thing.
