Too old to move?
We’re in our early 70s and have been caring for my parents for the last seven years. Dad has Alzheimer’s and is 94. Mom is 91 and had a mild stroke. My sister decided she didn’t want to help and moved to a different state.
We are in snowy cold weather until my parents leave this earth and arrive in Heaven. Could be in our mid 70s by then or older. We’ve always been drawn to AZ because of the sun and yes, heat. We would have no family there, but dont see our sons all that much here.
We were snowbirds there for a couple years until my parents needed more help.
When are we too old to move? Should we leave the son and grandkids who live close by but hardly see? To their defense, they do work constantly with crazy hours.
If we were to move to AZ now, my parents would have no one in their final years. So we care for them and watch our retirement years pass us by (no offense to my parents at all...just our reality).
We are not rich, so must be wise about where we land. AZ would be more affordable for us.
Would love to hear your thoughts.
