About Staying Put or Moving On
Staying Put or Moving On is a series of short films and links to resources exploring where and how we’ll live as we grow older. It’s a subject we’ve been thinking about for a long time. We worry about friends who weren’t able to have children or chose not to. Or friends with kids who live far away. Who will take care of them — or keep them company? And what about friends who chose adventure or art over savings? Or others who just had bad luck along the way? How are they going to afford a decent place to live?
Should we stay in our own homes or is it time to move on?
Can we remain independent and safely live in our own homes?
Will we be a burden on our loved ones?
If we do move because of choice or necessity, where will we go?
Staying Put or Moving On provides information and insights about these questions so seniors and their families can make informed decisions about their choices going forward. Your input is valuable and welcome, as we discover and share what they’ve learned. When people from different parts of the country – or the world — share their insights and ideas, it enriches our understanding of what is possible as we grow older.
