Living with old people

Senior housing isn’t for everyone. In fact, most of the seniors I meet want to stay where they are. Several years my parents rejected any kind of senior housing

because they did not want to live with old people. They were used to living in neighborhoods and condo complexes where there is a mix of young and old.

Senior housing comes in a couple of varieties. There is 55+ housing and there is 62+ housing. There could easily be a thirty or even forty year age range in 55+ housing but for some people living in a community like that isn’t a good fit.

Something to consider when contemplating a move to a senior community.
