Retirees can have independence, security

The article suggested seniors wait until they become less independent before considering the “expensive” proposition of moving to a continuing care retirement community.

How about moving when the retiree wants to be more independent? Moving into a maintenance free “lock and go” retirement community allows retired folks freedom, security and a health net for the rest of their lives.

Entry costs can be less than $50,000 with a portion of the fee used as a deposit for care if needed for future costs in areas such as assisted living and nursing care.

Brewster Place has served thousands of seniors during the last five decades and continues to add amenities so seniors enjoy safe, vibrant retirement years.

With a little planning, retirees don’t have to feel like an elder orphan.
