UW Faculty Publish Book For Older Adults

More and more older adults are seeking alternatives to their present living arrangements. Retirement communities and assisted living complexes are options that offer the privacy and support to help you, the older adult, remain independent for as long as possible. The book Choices: Making a Good Move to a Retirement Community describes the process of moving. It is based on the experiences of older adults who have successfully relocated.

In Choices, co-authors Heather M. Young and Rheba de Tornyay recognize that moving is a major life transition at any age. They address common questions and concerns about the moving process, which includes deciding to move, preparing to move, making the move, and settling in your new surroundings.

As you mature, your needs will change. You eventually may decide to free yourself from the responsibilities and upkeep of your home and demanding lifestyle. Choices helps you weigh your options and plan for your future.
