When Should I Move to a Senior Living Community? | Live Overture

George Burns hit the nail on the head when he said, “You can get older, but you don’t have to get old!” Heading north of 50, or 60, or 70 offers an opportunity to embrace retirement as a new beginning, relishing the escape from the daily grind and eager to enjoy newfound freedom, fun, and friendship. 

So, yes. It’s definitely time to move. The question is: Where do I go from here? More and more active adults are discovering the perfect solution. They are heading in droves to active adult communities all over the country to enjoy the perks of moving into senior living.
