Annie Hebner and Gretchen Wendorff of Private Label Realty can help plan a senior downsize.
As seniors, a successful move begins with critical thinking and planning. The first question to answer is do you downsize to a smaller home, condo, apartment or active adult community such as a senior apartment or assisted living facility within the same area? Or, do you leave the area to be closer to your grandchildren or other family members and where you will have more family support nearby? Or maybe you move to a place where the cost of living is lower and your money will go further. Taking the time to gather information and create a plan for aging before a crisis arises allows you the ability to make better decisions for your own future.
Then the question becomes how to start the process. What information is needed? Analyzing your current situation is a great place to start. Are you widowed, is your medical condition changing, or do you have a new diagnosis which requires some difficult decisions to be made? There are four major areas that should be examined: financial, housing, medical and legal.
A Senior Planning Advisor can assist with this process: helping you gather the necessary information, guiding you through your options and helping you develop your plan. By having the information you need, and having a guide by your side to help navigate the choices available, you will feel more confident in making these important decisions. As a caregiver or a family member of a senior who may be nearing or in a crisis, a Senior Planning Advisor can help reduce the stress and pressure.
