Choosing the right retirement community is hard – it’s like trying to find the perfect job. There are over 12,000 communities in the United States – each with different attributes such as amenities, culture, cost, and more. For many seniors, the retirement home they select is often times where they will live for the rest of their life, so picking the right one is crucial to them and their families.
This week, our team sought out the top senior living experts and asked for their advice. Read on to learn which factors are the most important and what questions you should ask when evaluating a retirement community.
Retirement is our reward after decades of hard work. It’s an opportunity to spend more time with family and kids, to travel, and to do all the things on your bucket list you wanted but were too busy to do. At the same time, it can be scary. We’ve been so used to a life where we get up and go to work for over 8 hours every day. It might feel unnatural to have so much free time.
Ovid compiled this great list after coming across a few really beautifully written retirement blogs. The authors captured and shared amazing experiences and showed just how rewarding retirement can be. Last month, we recently reached out to our favorite authors and asked about their blog’s story. There’s no specific order to these blogs – they are all inspiring and worth following!
