January 8, 2021
Hosted by Maria Lucassen, CPRC, DTM
One of the decisions you get to make when planning your Golden Years is where do you want to live? There are many choices whether to remain in the current home or relocate into a residence of a loved one, independent, assisted-living, or memory care community, and if the decision is made to move, how to go about doing it all. This is an important topic that I will discuss with my guest Thomesa Lydon. For more than 12 years she has been helping seniors decide on this area of retiring and for sure we will talk about the different options. Besides talking about the practical pros and cons, we will also look at what are some trends that are driving retirement living, and how Babyboomers are reinventing senior housing. As a result, the senior living space is growing more exciting and adventurous each year. Today, listeners can learn how to navigate the senior industries’ landscape and how to help create the next ‘living’ chapter that every senior has earned throughout their lifetime.
