Why Not Make This The Best Ever With A Dad Pad?
To many this may be a rather tall order and slightly out of the realm of reality. But I'll bet to that very special Father in your life it would be his best Fathers Day ever.
Especially if he's approaching those sacred golden years, Housing our parents and loved ones as they age can become not only a real emotional challenge if not one of the biggest in our lifetime. It can also be one of the most expensive. Elder care today is one of the most important issues and decisions we as children and loved ones will have to address and live with for the rest of our aging loved one's life.
There's lots of very important and critical decisions we will all be making sooner or later and the choices we make will impact not ony us but more importantly the quality of life and peace of mind for the very folks who made our lives possible. We all have choices to make and how we make them will impact our lives emotionally and financially for years if not decades to come.
No doubt about it, Senior Housing is a major growth industry what with 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 each and every day for the next 20 years or so.
So what are your plans? Unless your and/or your folks are independently wealthy and money's not an issue you will be facing that dilemma at some point and the decision you make can have dramatic consequences. Your folks may want to sell their home and move into an active senior community with loads of amenities and socialization. But what happens when the clock starts ticking and the years start passing?
One of the most prudent decisions and possibly most cost effective for the long haul is to invest on the very dirt beneath your feet if its at all possible. Sure it will no doubt impact your wallet on the front end. But the long term value and reward will be yours to keep. And who knows, perhaps there will be the day when you pass your home along to your children and wish to age in place and continue living on your family estate.
HAVE A VERY HAPPY AND LOVING FATHERS DAY!!
