If living in your existing home becomes unmanageable, it may be time to consider moving to Assisted Living or Sheltered Accommodation. These properties provide the benefits of retaining your independence whilst offering security and support from qualified staff. They are also designed to provide easy and worry-free living.
Depending upon the facilities being offered, the regular fees can vary considerably. For example; medical, home help, activities and property maintenance, will increase the cost. These communities do however offer the opportunity to live in accommodation specifically designed to provide comfort and security.
Regular maintenance fees would normally be in addition to the cost of moving in. You will need to consider the options of property purchase, renting, or a combination of both.
This option could provide an attractive solution at a very difficult time in life and give peace of mind to the family when full time care is not required. Living near your family may also be a consideration.
