Retirement and Weather

By in Uncategorized with 0 Comments

Want to shovel snow off your porch when you are 80 years old?

Want to get heat stroke taking out the trash at 80 years old?

 

No Way! Thus taking into consideration weather and location are key to successful living in your

Golden Years!

 

 

Research shows that the weather is a key factor in a successful retirement plan. Choosing a location that you will enjoy but that will not be taxing on your body is key to your retirement success. Not everyone can shovel snow into their  90’s nor do many people want to. Thinking ahead, planning and preparing for retirement is as much about money as it is about the location you choose to live in.

When planning ahead for your “Golden Years” take into consideration the following in regards to weather and location…

  • What is the coldest my particular area gets in the winter?
  • What is the hottest my particular area gets in the summer?
  • How will I shovel the snow off of my porch when I walk with a cane or a walker?
  • How will I handle the heat when I can no longer go somewhere to cool off when the weather gets to be too much?
  • What hospitals and medical centers are near me? How will I access them in inclement weather?
  • What social activities are near me? Museums, Music Halls, Places of Worship, etc. How will I access them in inclement weather?
  • Do my hobbies include outdoor activities such as walking, running, gardening, biking, fishing, etc.? How will the inclement weather affect me enjoying those activities?

Too many retirees do not take weather and location into consideration and end up in a situation where they are…

  • Isolated
  • Lonely
  • Not healthy due to medical access being too difficult to obtain
  • Trapped by the weather and thus not able to get outside
  • Depressed due to their living situation

 

Don’t let this happen to you. Before you retire, take into consideration not only the cost of living, but where you want to live. If shoveling snow at age 80 with your walker or cane does not sound like fun…then move. Move now, while you have options. Move now while you are in control of your situation…not your kids. We can help you with this. In fact…check out one of our favorites right here!
