Making a decision to leave one’s long-term home and downsize to a retirement community is difficult. You may have to leave your beloved neighborhood, your friendly neighbors, your favorite corner store, and the home you’ve made memories in for years. But for many seniors, all of that is worth the benefits of experiencing their golden years in a vibrant, active community of their peers.
