Dear Fellow Baby Boomer,
As we age we need to see a bird's eye view of our current life situation. This includes many things like our home, health and finances. While we are still healthy enough, can afford to travel and 'right size' our living space we need to plan for our future. This is not about 'downsizing our lifestyle' this is about 'Aging in Place - Resort Style'!
My husband, I and his sisters looked after his mom who lost her partner at 89 and was diagnosed with Dementia. She was still living and functioning in her home but was becoming more and more forgetful. She refused to leave her home and said “I’ll take poison if you make me leave!”
As we lived an hour away, we prepared weekly meals and visited her up to 3 times a week did all her laundry, yard and housework. We had home support helpers come 2 x a day to ensure she ate.
We learnt about and installed security cameras that all the family could access to make sure she was safe at all times.
All our efforts worked for 3 years until she fell down and really hurt herself. She never went home from the hospital; she was moved to a wonderful care facility Cartier House.
Those were a tough few years that really made us assess our life. We decided to be proactive and put our old, beloved ‘character home’ on the ocean up for sale as neither of us could continue the maintenance it required.
We made a list of our wants, needs and desires and made conscious compromises and choices.
We moved to the city to a ‘right-sized’ newer ‘character’ home with lower maintenance, higher perceived and real value.
As a 35+ year Interior Design Veteran and published Style Strategy Author I used my knowledge and experience to create a ‘resort like’ feel to our space that up-scaled our lifestyle to one that feels like we are on a ‘holiday at home’ every day!
