Yet it's pretty inevitable that at some point fairly soon, we're going to have to make some tough decisions about senior living for our parents, our sisters, our spouses. And ourselves.
Here's the good news. Senior living options are changing. We've come a long way from those stuffy waiting rooms and narrow, disinfectant-scented corridors we remember from the 1970's. Many of today's communities are downright dreamy -- they feel more like cozy small towns or high-end resorts than anything else. The enormous number of options available presents us with a chance to re-envision what's possible in aging. Not just for those lucky enough to be physically and financially sound, but for all of us.
Here, you'll find just a few inspiring senior living options that help us look forward in a positive way to what might be possible for us (and our loved ones) as we age. The places we profile may be too far from you, and some may be too expensive for your family's resources. But hopefully seeing what's possible will spark you to think about what's important to you when you start to tour the places that are within your reach.
