Location, location, location. Whether you or someone you love needs additional support, care, or just wants to live a more maintenance-free lifestyle, deciding where you want to live and retire is a significant decision. While some may choose to stay in the area where they currently live, others may want to move somewhere new for this next chapter of life.
When you think of your retirement lifestyle, what do you picture? Perhaps you want to enjoy restaurant-style meals with your friends or relax while someone else mows the grass. Maybe you want to join a book club or pursue new interests while someone else does the vacuuming. This could be your reality, but it’s all about where you live!

We often focus on diet and exercise to promote healthy aging, but socialization plays a significant role in our overall health and wellness.
