If your children take care of you it is cheaper than caregivers. If you remain in your current home, get frailer, sicker or more forgetful then your kids will be forced to come and take care of your needs. After all, you cared for them when they were little. None of us plans to become dependent, but if you don’t plan for that continency then your children may have to step in and fill the gaps in your care. If you like your children and wish to remain independent you should think about the impact your dependency will have on them and their lives. Here is a link to a detailed article in Forbes by Sara Zeff Geber that explains why you should anticipate the unanticipated.
A move into a Senior Comunity can help you be independent longer. Now that Covid 19 vaccines are being given in Assisted Living Homes and Communities, so if you move into one that you have been watching may be the way to live safer, live longer and be more independent. And you might just make more friends and have more fun, too. And it may give your family and friends peace of mind about your future.
Plan now to call Senior Seasons or a community close to you.
