Boomers and Seniors on the Move

Boomers and Seniors on the Move-2016 Directory for Older Adults.

Proud to once again be supporting the Born to Age Directory for Older Adults for 2016. They will be celebrating their 10th year. I am proud to be the ONLY Seniors Real Estate Specialist represented in this magazine. Let me know if you have been wondering, “Who’s going to take care of me (or Mom & Dad) when I no longer can?” It’s a good question. Not many of us want to think about it, nor have made any plans. Many clients I work with don’t address this until a crisis occurs. Everyone hopes and prays for good health, prosperity and longevity.

Most of us will outlive our ability to drive. Past 80, approx. 50% of us will have some form of dementia, or some form of a chronic disease. So, it might be a good idea to understand the options and possibilities. Talk to your children, parents, family members, friends, trusted advisers about how you INTEND to live as you get older.

So much has changed in senior care in the past decade alone and most people have no idea just how much. New products are being introduced, new advances in technology, new senior living communities are opening-the rapidity of change is imminent. Let me know how I can help get you the resources and assistance you need now or for your future.

Moving Mom and Dad-3 Reasons Why Moving First is Best

1) For older home owners in particular, it can be very stressful living in their home while agents are popping by with buyers, calling to make appointments and having to leave the house each time. Especially tiring if you are not ambulatory or ill.
2) The East Bay real estate market is competitive. Mom and Dad may not be able to secure their next home before their current home sells. They will need a Plan B so there will be a roof over their heads. I’ve had clients who moved in with family or friends, rented an apartment or moved temporarily to a hotel suite.
3) It’s easier to sort through all the stuff and determine what to take and what to leave; can take time and not feel rushed. Take only what you need and let others handle the heavy lifting. You might hire an organizer or move manager to help with the sorting and distribution.
