I'm 73. My life plan calls for moving to a retirement community at age 85. But of course that can change depending on developments.

I moved here in '06 and considered moving into a condo then, but decided I like gardening and shoveling snow. They keep me active. Otherwise, I'd trend toward couch-potato-ship.

I live in a story and a half 4 bedroom on a quarter acre in the suburbs. It's convenient enough to most city services.

Maybe home delivery and Uber will one day change things, but for now when you can no longer drive, living in the suburbs is difficult if not impractical.

Of course living near family is a plus. They can help in a pinch, but one doesn't want to overdo dependence on them.
