Why Work With a Lifestyle55+ Affiliate in Mississauga?

Tuesday Jul 25th, 2023


Deciding to move should be a time full of anticipation and joy for the next phase of your life. But for some people, especially seniors, the opposite can be true. Oftentimes, it can be a chapter full of anger, stress or sadness when they are being urged to make a move that isn’t their own choice or aren’t ready for.

As we age, there comes a tipping point where we can no longer take care of our homes. Many of us know that this time will come for our parents and even us, but it’s a topic of discussion that rarely comes up.

When major life changes come into play, like health issues or the death of a partner, the need to relocate necessitates a hasty move. And we all know that stress-filled moments like these are never the best time to make big decisions that will impact the rest of our lives.

Thankfully, there is an alternative. By making plans early in your golden years, you have the time to discover what your future options might be, what kind of lifestyle you want to live and where. You are in full control of your future and can make the best long-term decisions for you.

Working with a Lifestyle55+ Affiliate (formerly an Accredited Senior Agent - ASA) in Mississauga is a great first step in this process. Here are a few ways that we can help:

1. Talk to you 

Even by investing just one hour of your time talking with a Lifestyle55+ Affiliate, you will walk away knowing so much more about your options as it relates to your future move. 

2. Provide clarity 

If you are not sure if you should stay in your current home or move, a Lifestyle55+ Affiliate can provide you with questionnaires designed to help you discover the pros and cons of moving.

3. Research for you 

A Lifestyle55+ Affiliate can research and present all of your available options for future housing, all the way from active adult lifestyle and retirement communities to extended-care facilities.

4. Help you age in place

If remaining in your current home is of the utmost importance, a Lifestyle55+ Affiliate can help you age in place by recommending contractors who specialize in renovations to help seniors stay in their homes longer.

5. Connect you with trusted financial experts 

Understanding the financial implications of remaining in your home versus moving largely depends on your situation. A Lifestyle55+ Affiliate can put you in touch with financial advisors who can help you plan for your future.

6. Open the lines of communication with your family 

One of the best ways a Lifestyle55+ Affiliate can help you is by facilitating a conversation between yourself and your family, so they understand your wishes as it relates to your next move.

Don’t let circumstances rule the rest of your golden years. By considering your options now, you can have full control and choice as to how, when and where your next move will take you.
