The more practical among us probably already know and have made arrangements for our living arrangement when we are no longer able to live at home. HelpGuide.org provides the following considerations for the rest of us.
- Level of Care. If you are in pretty good health, it’s hard to say what kind of medical care you may need in the future; if you have a condition that will continue or worsen, you can gauge what to expect. Consider what type of health and mobility issues you may face.
- Location and Accessibility. You will want to have access to the medical facilities, stores, and other services you use. What kinds of transportation are available? Does the home or facility have steps or other terrain issues that will be difficult to deal with?
- Social Support. To keep from becoming isolated or depressed, you need to be near enough to friends, neighbors, family, and pastimes that are important to you.
- Caregiving Support. Consider your current and future housing needs. When your need for care increases, family may not be able to provide the level of care you need.
- Finances. Look into how much each option will cost, and prepare a budget. Figure out your ability to pay for whatever choice you make.
