All of us, at some point during our lives, have thought about what life will look like once we reach our senior years. Will I still be with my partner? How many grandchildren will I have? Will I be in good health? Will I still be living in my own home? 

When those golden years arrive some may find themselves at a crossroads making crucial decisions; having to sell the home that holds their most cherished memories, parting ways with prized possessions, saying goodbye to lifelong friends. Yet, no matter what the circumstances are, one thing is certain, most of us will still want to live a life full of caring relationships in a safe and stimulating environment where we can still enjoy the life we deserve.
