Making the move to an independent living community is a big decision. And it’s natural to be on the fence about whether it’s the best fit for your retirement and lifestyle. The truth is that independent living is a great option for older adults who are looking to trade in the hassles of home maintenance for more freedom and flexibility in their retirement.

Home Maintenance Has Become Too Much to Handle
