This is a very important question to address now rather than later. You want to be settled in way before you lose the desire to do so....

We all must be cognoscente of the eventualities and plan for them.

Awesome janeAnne. I see that Ashville made the top 20 list as the best places to live for Adventure towns. I know that would be important to me as a boomer, as well as sustainable living. I'll be your new vision of aging would fit my philosophy.

I love that you think about the changing lifetyles that we go through. I'm taking the SRES classes next month so maybe I'll have a better insight into the needs of the aging. In particular I think of the multi-generational or sandwhich families. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are well.

This is really something to ponder for all of us! Age creeps up faster than we'd like and it's better to have a plan in places before it's too late. If we can't decide what to do for ourselves while we are healthy (no matter how old we are today), somebody else will decide and we probably won't like it at all!

Living with regrets is the hardest thing of all.

You're a leader and a teacher - a woman of the ages with a heart, soul and good brains too!!!

Do you have a tree house with an elevator in Ashville with a gorgeous view???
