Think about location
CON: Moving to a new neighbourhood comes with stresses and benefits – it all comes down to finding a location that suits your interests and needs.
PRO: To some, a new location is all part of the adventure; to others it’s tricky, but local governments and seniors organisations are always happy to help new residents settle in and orient themselves to their new community. In over 55s communities, the management team or social committees are often a rich source of information and can connect you to information, care and advice. If staying local, there generally should be minimal issues with finding new services and facilities.
Many communities have the added benefit of increased security, delivering greater peace-of-mind around the clock, and an events program. And it is these benefits to wellbeing and happiness that are probably most important of all.
