Anala....I grew up here. This place has been around since I was a kid. Plus I am a nurse for 42 years in this area so I know how they treat their residents. Great! Like a family. The research I did was checking with an attorney about their tax status and word of mouth. Some of my friends live there, too. Everyone loves it. I saw my mom the last 6 years of her life with very few visitors but me and my sister. Her grandkids that she showered with gifts and money all their lives basically forgot her. Including my children. I decided I would not get in a position where my finances were depleted by my trying to "save" or "be good" to any of my kids or grandchildren. Right now I have a daughter in a bad situation (as you have probably already read about) that needs to decide to get out of herself, a son looking for a down payment on a house, and a grandchild looking for money for college. They all think I have money to spare but that's not true. Now they know I'm committed to this community and I can't give my money away. Or, that's what they think. It's not true. I can do whatever I want with my money but I'm pretending I cannot spend much now. My mom's money went fast in assisted living. $40,000/year for 6 years plus all her other bills. Old age, alone, is a real bummer. I saw too much of it in the ER. BTW there are other nice communities around here that I was priced out of so I feel lucky to have gotten into here. You are kind to ask.

I’m retired and Medium helps me foster a young mind. I write about my experiences in life. Some mundane, some sad, some funny, and hopefully none boring!
