Thanks Kitt for your reply. The house I live in now is in the same community so I still have the same familiar grocery, stores, etc. I really like my house - it is very comfy and cozy. The retirement community I am interested in has many, many activities, events, social things to do as well as fitness center and beautiful pool. There is also several dining rooms depending on how casual or formal you want to be. The units are apartments that vary in size according to cost and all have kitchens and in laundry units. It is very new. They also have assisted care if you become sick or need more help. The even have a store if you run out of milk or eggs. It is really a great place and I would have people and activities all the time. I would go tomorrow if I could get my son settled and sell my house. Well, that isn't possible right now but at least I have a goal in mind.
