One of the hardest decisions you’ll have to make when you get older is where you want to live. Where you live not only affects your wellness but your longevity as well. Taking the steps and having the conversation with your family ahead of time makes things so much easier for your family when it comes time to think about assisted living. Go into this difficult conversation with an informed choice about where you want to live as you start to age.
A recent article from Where You Live Matters gives us a few questions to consider when making this difficult decision.
Questions to consider before deciding to age in place:
- Would you rather be alone most of the time, or do you want easily available access to companions and social activities? While aging in place can be a solitary experience, a retirement community minimizes solitude. Choose which you’ll be most comfortable with over the long term.
