Location, Location, Location: Is this where you want to stop awhile?

Posted Jun 9th, 2015 in ElderPilot in Action

Sometimes when searching for that next home, we do not give ample thought to the actual location of the residence.  Never underestimate how location affects a person's lifestyle.  As you can see from my pic, I would have been well advised to rethink my location.

When looking at Retirement homes or communities, consider the lifestyle you currently lead, and how a geographical change will play into your lifestyle:

  • Do you like to walk to local amenities?
  • Are you still driving?
  • If you are reliant on the Retirement Residence for transportation to town, or the shops, what is the schedule like?  What is the round trip plan?
  • Do you golf, swim, or engage in sports: where are these activities held?
  • Are you close to family, friends, and acquaintances?
