I have heard something very disturbing is that the people that own the retirement villages have put the age of entry up to 70 and they want older people there because the older they come in, the more turnover they get. When the people die (sooner rather than later )they can then sell the place to someone else and make more money. I think...what a scam. Advice to oldies, stay with your children, set up a granny flat if you have to. Dont be conned. Your grandchildren want to spend time with you and cant do that if you locked far away in these gated communities that hate younger people so much they cant stand to live with them. Besides, retirement living isnt all champagne and travel. That only lasts a few years or even a few weeks after you finished work. Then what you going to do with the rest of your life. I dont think its really up to you...its up to God what He wants you to do with the life Hes given you. And we need oldies to teach us all the skills that are being lost like how to knit or make stuff by hand and all that kind of thing.
