I do have family (two daughters and two GK) living close by. The question is, do I want to be a burden? Or do I want to spend lots of $$$$ of their inheritance money not to burden them. Choices, choices.

IMHO, it isn't their inheritance money. Yeah, I know. No one asked me. Bur really, you should not sacrifice your comfort so they can live off your money.

The CCR's I have seen start with minimum "assistance", and gradually increase as the individual's need increases. Some will never need anything. Some will need food preparation, and perhaps regular apartment cleaning. Some will need total care.

The incentive is that you make the decision yourself, while you are still in full possession of your faculties, and don't depend on your relatives to decide.

Me? I have a young wife who will take care of me (I hope. Maybe she will lock me away in a cheap nursing home.)
