For all the uncertainty surrounding life in retirement, there is one universal truth. Whether we choose to stay at home, to relocate to a smaller residence, to move in with a relative or to make the move into Independent Living at a (CCRC), sooner is often better.
Because the sooner we make a choice, the better we can enjoy and appreciate the benefits of the choice we’ve made. And the longer we live in doubt about the years ahead, the more stressful, anxious and uncertain those years will become. We can’t predict what the future holds, but we can manage our risks and improve our odds through judicious planning. By having a plan in place and acting on it while we are healthy, we can be sure that if and when a time comes when our health may not be in our control, our future will be.
