“There’s no place like home” — DorothyPublished on January 24th, 2012
Home is where you feel safe, comfortable, loved. Sometimes, being home is the only thing that makes you feel better. Why then do we think we have to leave our comfort zone in order to feel taken care of as we age? Being able to age in the place that makes us feel the happiest ( and thus healthier) is not too much to ask. We don’t have to go “somewhere over the rainbow.” Staying put is smart financially and smart emotionally. If you are dubious about your options, read “Keeping Your Aging Parents Safe at Home” from Money Magazine. It provides lots of sound advice on the subject. Don’t just take Dorothy’s advice.
