Mary Dana talks about her decision to move to a retirement community

It was more and more a struggle just to keep things going. First of all, I had a house that had two stories and it was a chore to get to the other story where I wasn’t living… Plus the fact that in a winter like the one we’re experiencing now, you have to contract with somebody to get the snow off the roof and you have to contract with somebody to plow the driveway and sidewalk and that’s another chore and then in the summertime you have all of that grass to keep up with… All of those little things added up, it just got to be more and more of a struggle. And of course I was calling my family all of this time and they were calling me wanting to know if I was safe.

Gloria Sugarman talks about her decision to move to a retirement community

Even with all the chaos of moving and getting rid of things and having a tag sale and all of that and selling the house, of course, even with all of that it felt right, right from the beginning and it’s felt right ever since.
