The Perfect Home for a Long Life responds to the anxieties of boomers and seniors about where to live when they grow old and their fears about ending up in a nursing home.

This book is designed to help people plan their future by providing creative and concrete examples of the many ways they can organize their living arrangements to support lives of quality and fulfillment throughout their retirement years. Housing needs are as individual as the residents themselves, and The Perfect Home for a Long Life guides the reader to discover what their needs are and how to fulfill them.

The Perfect Home for a Long Life looks at downsizing, modifying your home, and retirement communities, as well as innovative solutions such as cohousing, shared housing, supportive housing, along with a number of other creative options.
