Unfortunately, it’s also expensive, congested, and much different than it used to be. After deciding IF you should stay in your home or make a transition to a new home, it’s time to decide WHERE you will go next. Will you downsize to a smaller home, transition to a retirement community or relocate out of the area? And where would you relocate to anyway?

We’ll even have some special guests from the top retirement communities in the area who will help answer all of your tough questions without the sales pitch. IN-HOME CARE VS.
