Many active adults wait too long to make a move to a community that has the resources on campus to take care of the what ifs that life serves up.
Below are some questions and answers that make you think about the subject.
What are the reasons people choose NOT TO MOVE to a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community)?
“I’m not ready.”
“I don’t want to live with all those old people.”
“I don’t want to give up my independence, my home, my stuff.”
“I can’t bear the thought of cleaning out the closets, attic, and the garage.”
“I can’t afford it.”
“I don’t want to live in an institutional setting.”
What are the reasons people DO CHOOSE to move to a retirement community?
The availability of future healthcare if ever needed.
The availability of services such as dining, housekeeping, maintenance, grounds keeping, and healthcare.
The opportunity for fellowship, friendships, and camaraderie.
The desire to relieve children and family members from the burden of care or decision-making.
The presence of amenities such as a fitness center, library, aquatics programs, lifelong learning, educational, cultural, and spiritual programs.
The personal freedom that comes from not being burdened with home ownership.
The opportunities for continued personal growth.
The convenience of on-site support services.
