When you start feeling like the house, the yard, cooking, laundry, and grocery shopping are all getting to be too much, you might be ready for something in housing that serves you better! You know you’re not ready for the classic “old folks’ home.” But you are ready to take life a little easier and start a new chapter. So, where do you start?

There are many living options out there. If you are thinking of a Retirement Home—but something a little different— Community Living is another viable, and very popular, option in today’s market. Start by taking stock of exactly what you’re looking for. Of course, price and size are always a consideration. Be sure that you know what each place includes in their rental fee; things like: utilities, meals, activities, bus tours, emergency pendants, parking, and optional charges.
