Should we move into a retirement community, now that we have arrived at a stage in life where our daily living requirements seen to be presenting us with many unforeseen problems? It takes a lot of serious soul searching on one's part to come up with the right decision for this question. Giving up a known lifestyle and moving to an unknown is a very daunting and emotional experience.
My husband and I had many serious discussions on the pros and cons of such a move. In the end we concluded that many of the neccessary things that we needed or desired- such as help in an emergency, transportation to medical appointments, the availability of meals, annd physical and social activities commensurate with one's overall health - would be available in a proper retirement community.
