Maintaining a house during retirement can be stressful, costly, and time-consuming. You or your loved one may be looking forward to traveling more, pursuing activities of interest, or simply relaxing, but if your house is holding you back you may need to put your plans on hold.

Enhanced senior living communities pair maintenance-free living with an active lifestyle to ensure seniors enjoy meaningful activities, friendships, and on-site conveniences.

Still unsure if enhanced living is right for you? Use the following checklist to help determine if enhanced living will fulfill your dream retirement.
