The Golden Years
Some of the things we all should look forward to in life is aging gracefully and living life to the fullest. When I say living life to the fullest I mean looking back when you are in your late years and having a huge smile on your face. Memories of having all of the family together at your home for the holiday's or special events are priceless. When all of the kids have left to start their own families and you're deep into retirement a certain set of decisions may arise.
Do We Still Want To Live In This Big House or Downsize?
There may come a time when taking care of that 5 bedroom 3 bath house is too much. On top of that you have grown tired of mowing that huge lawn. If you don't have someone to maintain eveything for you downsizing may be the best option.
Downsizing may not mean moving into a smaller house or an apartment though. It could mean looking into the option of moving to a retirement community. What is a retirement community you ask? It is a residential community or housing complex designed for older adults who are generally still able to take care of themselves.
Some of these communities are very nice with a lot of extras, resources and great staff. Some of the immenities included are movie theaters, game rooms, workout centers and even pools. If you are social butterfly you will still be able to spread your wings. In the community there will be other individuals and couples who you will be able to mingle with just like you did in your neighborhood. There are a few retirement communities to choose from in the city of Memphis that may spark your interest.
