There have been some interesting threads here about assisted living and other elements of life in retirement, but I wanted to start a new one, perhaps suggesting various other aspects to discuss. I have not made it a poll because I think that tends to limit what people can say. How about your views on the following -- and perhaps other topics about "retired living"?

If you have not yet retired, do you have your own home, or do you live in an apartment or condo?

Would you like to retire to a condo or another private home? Or would you prefer moving to one of the so-called "retirement villages" or even "assisted living" facilities?

Have you carefully considered the cost of retirement in the style and location you envision?

Do you prefer being surrounded by others or do you prefer peace and quiet in your own home, perhaps situated on a sizable chunk of land?

Where do you live now -- in the country, city or where? What part of the country? Would you want to change that or would you like to remain in the same area?

Are you alone or part of a couple or family? Do you envision being alone in retirement?

What else have you thought about or dreamed of in retirement?

If you are already retired now, are you happy with your choice(s)? Or do you envision changing?

Just a few thoughts. What else can we discuss here?

Happy New Year, again!
