Talk to your future neighbours
A great tip on moving to a retirement community is finding out who the people in your new community are. When moving to a retirement community you will want to get acquainted with other like-minded individuals. They will be able to offer you a real feel for the retirement community and also answer any questions you may have.
It is a great idea to visit the retirement community before your move and get to know your neighbours. You may even choose to bring along a friend or a family member. What you will find in the retirement community is generally a tight-knit community, open to offering guidance. Many people, who have moved into retirement communities, have developed closer connections than in their old hometowns.
