Article Lists Pros, Cons Of Retirement Housing Options.

February 7, 2019

U.S. News & World Report (2/7) says there are “many decisions to make” for older adults when they are retiring and considering where to live. According to the 2018 Home and Community Preferences survey by AARP, most people 50 years or older wish to stay where they are for as long as possible. However, the article mentions that older adults can also “opt for an active adult community, assisted living facility, or continuing care retirement community” as well as moving into a condo that are “within walking distance of entertainment” for retirement. In addition, living with family members is also an option, especially if the retirees “have a close relationship with a child or relative.”
