Senior Housing Transitions

seniorblock-oneline1

Seniors...there are many different concepts of what constitutes a ‘Senior’.  For the AARP, it’s age 50...for many housing communities it’s age 55. If you asked some people in that age bracket they may say age 90. Whatever your definition, seniors are more active, more independent and living longer than ever...and housing options are changing accordingly.

Many empty nesters are finding themselves ‘sandwiched’ between parents and adult children. Some are moving to one-story homes, with at least one bedroom, an office/guest room and laundry on the main level. It’s convenient living, with easier visitability for aging parents...and you may also have room for visiting children and grandchildren on a walkout/daylight lower level.

Some are choosing townhomes or condos in a common interest community to give them freedom from yard work, snow removal and exterior maintenance...with more freedom to travel.  ‘Downsizing’ doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing space...sometimes it’s just rearranging it.

Whether you are considering a change for yourself or a parent, options abound...from single family homes with universal access to townhomes and condos to continuing care communites with different types of housing and services offered within the same complex.
