"So, I (we) are looking at what the world has available for a couple of reclusive old farts"


DW and I were in a similar situation with her mother & brother. And earlier with my mother.
We had a section of our home allocated for "live-in" family as/when needed - and we had
my mother living with us for a time before she began having a series of mini-strokes and
needed more care than we could provide.
I think figuring out what gives you and your DW joy is a first step. What you enjoy
doing together and separately. Then aim toward places that seem to get you closer
to those activities and people. If you think about moving, testing out an area with a
longer-than-a-week "vacation" can help - but logistics can be a real problem.

If it help, you are not the only folks trying to figure out the "whats" and "where's"
of retirement. We have the "how's" pretty close to complete - but the devil does get
into the details.
