Housing Issues


  • Choosing a Retirement Community

    Perhaps you've seen ads for a new "over 55" luxury condominium development in your town. Or another winter of shoveling has finally convinced you that it's time to move to a warmer climate. You're looking forward to life in a retirement community, but with so many options, how do you choose the right one?

  • Housing options for older individuals

    As you grow older, it may be time to consider your housing options. Maybe you're determined to stay in your present home, but tasks like housecleaning and yardwork have become too difficult. Perhaps you're thinking of moving in with your child. You have much to think about as you make this difficult decision. Will you need any help, financial or otherwise, or can you care for yourself? Will you accept help from others? How important is your privacy? If you're looking into assisted-living facilities or a nursing home, can you afford such care?
