As a Seniors Real Estate Specialist…..I see the same scenario over and over. You have lived in your home for many, many years and “are not leaving”. This is home. There are many ways we can work together to keep you in your home if that is your first choice…at least for as long as you possibly can.
I partner with many companies in the senior living industry. I would be happy to refer to you any medical or non medical help you may need. DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK!
Perhaps you need someone to help you with grocery shopping once a week, or maybe cook a couple of meals…or even take you to a doctors appointment. Let me help, really!!
With that said, is your house still the right home? Ask yourself and answer (honestly) a few questions..
Do you feel safe? Do you have slippery hardwood floors? Too many stairs? Alone at night?
Is the maintenance of your home overwhelming you? Are you having any trouble finding and keeping maintenance help?
Is your health declining? And with that question..will this be easier in 1 year, 5 years, or?
Have you recently lost a spouse and do you ever get lonely?
Are you still driving, and if not, are you isolating yourself?
If you are thinking of selling your home…where would you start and where would you go! The goal is to avoid a “crisis” situation!
