Struggling with the Tough Question; Should I Move?

Struggling with the Tough Question; Should I Move?

Deciding to sell your long time home is a hard decision.  

Take some time to be in the moment. Write down your feelings about moving. Sometimes seeing it on paper can bring emotions to the surface for you to understand what is behind procrastination and fear. Talk to your spouse about your future. Does your current home meet your current needs? Do you have the energy to maintain your home as you did in the past? Are you relying more and more on outside help? Do you have challenges navigating stairs, cutting grass, shoveling snow and cleaning your home? Are finances strained in maintaining your home? These are all questions that can be shared with your partner and family. A discussion of your current physical and mental wellness can be a great first step to your overall health. Maybe a move is not necessary as there are many services to help keep you at home. Maybe your home just isn’t set up for your specific needs and outside help won’t change your home’s setup. But in the end, this life is not necessarily a dress rehearsal.

Often I am called by the child in distress whose parent has become incapacitated or has come to the end of their life. The word I hear most often is overwhelmed.
