Christmas is a great time for families to get together to enjoy some lovely food and drink and to enjoy spending time with each other. However, it can also be an emotional time, as we see our relatives getting older each year and we tend to think about their future.
During Christmas time, family discussions may arise surrounding downsizing, helping to move elderly relatives so they can live nearer to us, or discussions may arise around the future care of ourselves or of older people in the family.
If you are looking to move an elderly relative nearer, it’s a good idea to do some research to find out what’s available in your area. Many older people want to remain independent in their own home for as long as possible and retirement living can help them to achieve just that.
Basically, there are two types of retirement developments – retirement living and assisted living. Retirement living is generally aimed at those 55 years of age and assisted living is aimed at those who are over 70 years old, who may need a little bit of extra help with things like food shopping. Bespoke care packages are available if and when needed. More importantly, both types of developments offer individual, self-contained apartments where homeowners have their own front door.
