Excellent questions for where & how to age in place in your dream home

You’ve decided to age in place, and you want to do it in a home you’ve dreamed about for decades.  You may know where you want to live, or you may be on the search for your ideal location. Do you want to be around world-class golf courses or miles of sandy beaches? Do you love skiing all winter and biking all summer? Are you looking for a secluded location or a sense of community near a small town? The world is your oyster, and the fun begins the moment you commence your search.

Designing a house means focusing on the ways you want to live. If you plan to entertain, a spacious kitchen with all the modern appliances could be your idea of heaven. However, cleaning and maintaining it may entice you to add space for a Jacuzzi, order take-out, and relax! 

Planning for the later years means deciding if you want a one-story home, the master bedroom downstairs, or flush shower entries. You can also build bunk bedrooms for all the grandchildren who plan on visiting (especially if you chose the beach location.)
