You can pick your friends, not your family
Why not build a community with people who share the same values, and want the same things in a lifestyle?
Many older people suffer loneliness because their family move away, a partner dies and they are no longer able to drive or get out and about so easily. They often live on a large block, unable to maintain the garden and buildings and would thrive with a younger family or single people moving into the property. Yes, legal contracts, agreements and building modifications are needed.
DEStress Time & methods to make it a smooth process
It takes time with the support and mentoring of experienced community-living advisors but as you will hear from the people who have taken the journey – it’s worth it. Beats loneliness.
