Many of us grow up viewing our parents as heroes. They take care of our every need, they support our hopes and dreams, they teach, they love, they guide.

You’ve reached retirement. It’s the best time of your life, and that’s actually a fact. Did you know that statistically people are happier during retirement compared to any other part of their lives? Anyways, you are trying to decide what your next adventure will be, and the idea of moving comes up.
As your parents get older, it’s natural for them to need additional help. If you’re unable to provide the support and care they need daily, it can leave you feeling guilty and overwhelmed.
