Consider first your Housing needs!

When deciding on the senior housing plan that’s right for you, it’s important to consider not
only the needs you have now but also those you may have in the future:

Physical and medical needs. 
As you age, you may need some help with physical needs, including activities of daily living.
This could range from shopping, cleaning, cooking, and looking after pets to intensive help with
bathing, moving around, and eating. You or a loved one may also need increasing help with
medical needs. These could arise from a sudden condition, such as a heart attack or stroke, or a
more gradual condition that slowly needs more and more care, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Location and accessibility.
