When it comes to thinking about your retirement you might have a plan of where you are going to live and the activities that you are going to enjoy, but for others it isn’t something that they plan beforehand. There are a number of options that are available for those who are nearing retirement age and these include some of the following.
Family home – remaining in the family home may be your first choice and you might like to remain in the place where you brought up your children. This may depend very much on whether your children have properties of their own and whether they have moved further away.
Gloucester Park Homes – this is another option if you want to move to something a little smaller than your family home and into a single storey dwelling. These homes are also situated on a park that is designed for the over 55’s so that you have a ready made community of people that you can interact with and join in which activities and groups that are set up. You can see some great options at http://www.parkhomelife.com/our-parks/orchard-park-homes-gloucester-gloucestershire/
Monitored housing – there are sheltered accommodation options available and retirement villages that you can move to if you are thinking of being somewhere that you can access further support in the future. The people that tend to move into these kinds of homes are those that have been diagnosed with some kind of medical condition or who are long distances from their family and isolated on their own.
