I went against conventional advice to move to a house with stairs and otherwise work to keep my health and fitness but things can and do happen.

Ditto. I moved here at age 61 knowing that I would not be able to keep this place up forever. I wanted a lawn and garden to help keep me active. The work gets more difficult, but I pace myself. An hour or two at a time when the weather is nice.

It's better than spending all day sitting in a recliner somewhere.

I hope to live here until age 85, but one never knows. Things can change quickly. But I say enjoy it while you can. Adapt when you need to. But do have a plan.

As to finances, that could include fixed annuities sometime in the future when doing my own investing is no longer fun. Yes, I have a will and a POA in good hands.
