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?
