You may be completely independent and healthy when you move, or you may need help continually. Yes, we’re staying healthier longer, but your health can change at any time as a senior. Planning for the future (and the unexpected) is always a good idea.
That’s why choosing a senior living community that fulfills both your current needs and any health needs you may have in the future must be a consideration.
Make sure you ask the right questions so you can make an informed decision and find the senior community that’s right for you.
Continuing care retirement living covers the entire spectrum of options, from independent condominiums or apartments to full-time nursing care. How does one know the type of living situation that may be best for aging parents or oneself? In the fourth of an eight-book series on downsizing, senior move managers Doug and Judy Robinson examine what you should look for in a retirement or nursing home, including necessary amenities, services, financial implications, and layout/design. Insight is provided about staffing, furnishing and equipping a suite, additional services and committing to a contract. No matter where you spend your retirement years, it is important that safety, comfort and independence be primary considerations.
