In the Comfort Life Spotlight


Comfort Life interviewed family members of seniors in retirement communities across the country. In story after story, we learned how communities had made seniors' lives better, how people were often surprised or even blown away by how happy and fulfilled parents felt after moving, and how much easier life became for both parent and adult children.

In these videos we asked the following questions, gathering details about how about how the move had positively impacted families. Collectively, these offer you reassurance that the move is definitely worth it. In many cases linked to below, people admit that they wish they had made the move earlier, and that they could have, as well. Here are the questions you'll find answered:
