As Americans, we tend to be sentimental about places.
This is the house that I grew up in.
This is where my children grew up.
This was the house we lived in when my spouse passed away.
Moving means leaving; and often when we leave a special place that we’ve been at for a long time or a unique time of life, we feel like we’re abandoning or losing the people who made it special, so we hang on longer than we should, longer than is best for us.
Aging, whether you like it or not, is a time of adaption and change, and often it means a new living arrangement. Thinking ahead to your future housing needs is an important part of ensuring that you continue to thrive as you age.
The earlier you assess your current needs
and how those needs may evolve,
the more choices and control you’ll have.
