Ask for the opinion of friends and residents
Once you’ve made a shortlist with the options that suit you best, don’t hesitate to talk to friends who’ve already taken the big step and moved to a different place.
Find out what obstacles they’ve encountered along the way and learn from their experience. Moreover, if you have your eyes set on a certain retirement community, don’t be afraid to ask residents about the pros and cons of living there. Listen carefully to what they have to say so that you are able to make the right choice for yourself and your future.
