The Retirement Resolution Checklist
This is the year to help your loved ones move forward with their retirement. Maybe they have talked about moving or downsizing eventually. Make “eventually” become sooner rather than later by sitting down with your parents and helping them create a plan for the future. Start on their new year’s resolution with our retirement checklist:
Determine what type of community is the best fit.
Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care? If your parents are looking to keep their lifestyle, yet have some additional daily help, then Assisted Living could be right for them. Seniors who have started to experience memory loss or have a history of Alzheimer’s may want to consider communities that offer Memory Care.
Set a time frame for a move.
Whether it’s six months or three years, setting a time frame for moving to a retirement community can take some of the stress out of planning for the future — for both you and your parents.
Make a financial plan.
Help your parents compare different financial plans for different communities. Many places offer affordable living with no compromise on quality of care. Visiting a financial planner can also be an important step in this process.
Schedule tours at local communities.
Visiting communities is the best way for your parents to decide if they can see themselves at a community. Attend the tours with them so that you know you are finding the best possible place for Mom and Dad.
