When kids leave the nest, when a spouse passes away, or the desire to finally live out that dream you’ve been putting off just can’t wait any longer, it’s time to take that NEXT STEP in your life. If so, then you are in the right place.
You may find that your housing situation no longer suits the lifestyle you want, and you may be looking to downsize or move to a different climate, hello Florida! But, a move like that takes planning, resources and community. We curate resources and provide insight for you and the thousands of people just like you that are looking to make the BIG move… And looking to do it the right way!
SHOULDI MOVE is a nonprofit organization committed to helping seniors with one of the biggest transitions in their lives. Transitioning out of a family home can be difficult, especially where the home was shared with loved ones for a long time. We help curate resources to help with the research, planning, and execution of taking that next step in life.
RESEARCHING: PLACES TO MOVE
Should you rent or buy a home? How many bedrooms should you have in your new home? Is Florida really the perfect place to retire? Is a quiet mountain home the best option?
Ever heard of decision fatigue? It’s a real thing, we make hundreds of choices each day, from what to eat, to what to wear and what to buy at the grocery store. Taking some time to research your options will help you feel more prepared for the decisions and changes you must make. The more decisions we make the more fatigued we all feel. So, when we add even more decision making to our lives when making large changes, it can become overwhelming. Doing your research beforehand is one way to alleviate decision fatigue. When you nail down certain details and figure out what you are most comfortable with you free yourself up to make the next move in your life. Below you will find a collection of articles to help you research your options and on all of the things to consider when moving at this stage of your life.
