The Cost of Living And Retiring At Home“Living at home is free, so why move?” is the answer many seniors give when they are asked about the option of moving to a retirement community. But is aging at home really free?
the unforeseen costs of in-home care assistance, home retro-fitting or transportation assistance, many retirees may not realize that aging at home is not as “free” as they thought—especially if unanticipated health issues arise.
So how does one assess the different living options and their associated costs?
To help, Comfort Life magazine has launched a new e-book entitled “REPORT: The Cost of Living at Home”. This easy-to-read resource is a must-have for anyone who is currently assessing his or her retirement living options.
The report provides the reader with a financial case study of the real costs of aging at home. We analyze the current financial situation of Graham age 80, and Ethel age 78, and look at their costs of living under the four most common retirement living circumstances:
? Staying at home with community support
? Staying at home with agency support
? Bringing in a live-in caregiver
? Moving to a retirement community
This e-book was designed to help seniors and their families understand what the real costs of retirement living and aging are, how to assess their specific situation and how to make an informed decision based on facts.
This e-book is absolutely free and can be downloaded here.
