Well, maybe not – but we do worry about our elders – and want to make sure that we keep them away from passing sleighs…..We always want to keep them safe and take care of them the way they took care of us.
Since we have decided to work with Seniors in the real estate market, we have visited several facilities in the area and spoken with a lot of Seniors – 60 and up.
One thing is pretty evident – once they make a decision and make that move, those folks are happy folks! And why shouldn’t they be! The ones who choose a large facility, like The Chesapeake and Warwick Forest have it all – they have their meals prepared ~ and oh what choices they can make on what and when to eat! ~ they have work out rooms, swimming pools, patios to enjoy, fireplaces for chats with their neighbors and someone is always close by.
On the other hand, the Boomers who make that choice to downsize – are equally happy they did. And we talk with them a lot, too. No more yards to mow, empty rooms to clean, or a huge home tugging at your senses for all the upkeep it needs. When you make the move to a townhouse or condo and give up all the “things” that keep you tied to a house, you are liberated!
And the builders are beginning to understand the theory that as we get older, and there are more and more of us every day who reach the “Senior” place in life – we need a place to go that offers just what we need and that frees us from “all that”.
So – if you are a Baby Boomer or a Classic and you are trying to make a decision on what step to take next – for you or your folks, give us a call. We would love to talk to you and give you the information that we have.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
