The new year is a fresh start, a new beginning, and an excellent opportunity to take the plunge and finally declutter your home. It’s the daunting project that you keep putting off, and every time you delay it, it seems as though the clutter just keeps piling up.
Similar to buying a new car or a new house, senior housing is an investment for you or your loved one. While retirement costs shouldn’t break the bank, it’s essential to understand the value of what you or your loved one are paying for.
As loved ones age, it may be common for them to begin to realize that the home they’re living in is becoming a significant burden. A large house can not only create an extensive list of chores, but it can also be costly and lonely. Many seniors living at home can become overwhelmed with the work required to maintain the house, causing them unwanted stress.
