Aging Couple Considers Move to Be Closer to Family

An aging couple, who have lived in their home for 45 years, are considering relocating across the country to be closer to their daughters and four grandchildren. The couple, who are very close to their daughters, have no relatives nearby and frequently visit their children. They believe they would be happier and potentially need to be closer to their family as they age.

The couple is weighing the decision to move, noting that similar moves by others have sometimes resulted in finding grandchildren busy with their own lives and adult children preoccupied with their responsibilities. One suggested approach is to rent an apartment in the new community for a year to assess integration before committing to selling their long-time home.
