AGING BABY BOOMER RETIREES ARE LEAVING HOME

AGING BABY BOOMER RETIREES ARE LEAVING HOME

Are you leaving home? Lots of Baby Boomers are doing it.

Why?
Most retired boomers are on the move because what we once considered forever homes, towns, and cities no longer fit our present needs or future plans.

Where?
Some of us have definite destinations. The rest of us are searching for the 'perfect place' to live. Is there such a place? 

Outcome?
No matter where we land, we're going to feel a bit disoriented and dislocated, probably for a while. Obviously, those feelings will be stronger and last longer if boomers are living alone for the first time in our adult lives, either due to deaths of spouses, divorces, and/or grown-up children emptying our nests.

NOTE
Once Baby Boomer widows and divorcees adjust to the disconcerting changes in living conditions, the majority does quite well. Over time, most new singles wind up enjoying our privacy and treasuring independence. It is refreshing to do what we want, when we want.

AGING BABY BOOMERS ARE ON THE MOVE - OR NOT

AGING BABY BOOMERS ARE ON THE MOVE - OR NOT

Once the retirement decision is settled, Baby Boomers turn our attention to current places of residence.

Should we stay put or move somewhere else?
And: Where is the best place to go? Who will accompany us? What will we do when we get there ... wherever there is?

On one hand, some boomers believe fresh starts are liberating. New surroundings, new people, and new opportunities perk up our lives.
On the other hand, some of us are hesitant to move away from family, friends, neighbors, and all that is familiar.

It's natural to have moments of doubt and anxiety, even when we move with a spouse or a friend.
What about doing it alone? Would you? Could you?

NOTE
The growing trend among retired Baby Boomers is testing out various types of residences in a wide array of locales, on a temporary basis, before planting roots and making permanent moves.
