Retirees Living in Assisted Living
Now that I have lived for several months at Assisted Living and hearing better, I have had a chance to visit with a number of the residents.
I thought everyone living here had some kind of medical condition that required assistance. There are a number of senior single & married couples that have no health problems requiring daily assistance and have cars that they can still drive well. They just got tired of cooking for themselves, doing home maintenance, paying property taxes.
They sold their homes and live on the interest from the proceeds plus their Social Security and any pension benefits. They participate in the scheduled social activities that are provided by the facility.
They all say that they are aware that because of their age they will no doubt develop medical problems that require assistance and living here would not require moving.
So I guess it's not just me that was looking ahead.
