My mom and dad never went to assisted living......mom was getting close to needing it.....but was too independent.....

My Uncle, at 91, sold his house and moved into an assisted living place. he wasn't able to take care of his 80 year old house any longer....big 2 story (with basement) 4 bedroom......and do the outside work like cleaning gutters....plus the neighborhood had really deteriorated..so he sold it and moved into assisted living/nursing home type place. did fine till just after 94.....then required more care and went downhill quick.

I'm planning on staying in house for another 5 or 10 years till 70 or older..then I'll worry about it.

The ham radio and assisted living aren't too compatible....

As long as I can drive and get around, I can afford to pay someone to mow the grass...or even clean the house if I get back to paying for that.
