When most people think of purchasing a home, they might first resonate with the financial responsibility that comes along with that purchase. Buying a home is said to be one of the true feats of becoming a responsible adult. Most people, however, do not think about the maintenance required through the years, or how they might care for the home as seniors. Purchasing a home is rather permanent, and it is important to be cautious of all the factors that come with new ownership. Having older parents facing issues with senior home care maintenance is a significant problem for living independently. Nearly 70% of home upkeep tasks are considered challenging for seniors.
The term retirement used to symbolize an out-of-date lifestyle that many associated with living without any purpose. In the 60’s, the image of retirement may have been grandma making sweet tea, while grandpa chews on a piece of wheat and sways in a rocking chair on the front porch. Fortunately, if you are a senior, the times have changed, and with it the old stigma around retirement. With the constant evolution of medication and technology, seniors are living longer and stronger than ever.
