Choosing a home for your best retirement living options is more complicated than many people realize. As the years of retirement stretch on, our needs and abilities change. Sometimes, the home that has served a person well for decades may no longer be suitable due to age-related or other chronic conditions and can become a hazard due to stairs or other obstacles. Moreover, there are multiple complicated considerations with relocating.

You may be faced with questions like these. Is a private home still appropriate? Can I age in place? What’s the difference between an assisted living, senior living community, nursing home, how do I know that I am choosing the right living arrangements, etc.?

When is it Time for a Senior to Relocate?

While there are a variety of benefits that come with moving as a senior, it can be a stressful topic for individuals and families. Transitioning to a new home may mean saying goodbye to a home that’s comfortable and familiar, and it may be difficult to take the plunge and to figure out the best time to make a move.

Focus on the positive aspects of moving. It’s also important to seriously evaluate and consider your current and future needs.

Some reasons why considering a move might be the right choice include: (3)

  • A desire to live closer to friends or family. If loved ones and family members live far away, you may want to move closer to have a support system nearby.
  • Managing a medical condition that will require an increasing amount of care.
