New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 8, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Tbesday February HERALDZEITUNO Page AROUND TOWN Retirement community offers wealth of options DEAR ABBY DEAR ABBY Your advice to Sis the Nag from Hickory Hills was right on target The woman is a primary candidate for retirement living Unfortunately society as a whole and especially the maturing adult is underedu cated when it comes to the resources available to them and the many advantages of those resources A large part of the American culture continues to perceive retirement living in the same vein as life in a nursing home hence the hesitation when it comes to this type of decision making Although life hi a retire ment community is quite the con trary this perception has been slow to change I work in a Continuing Care Retirement Community The beauty of this environment is that there are 60 70 80and 90yearold adults who continue to live active and independent lives and yet have assisted and nursing care services available to them in the event these needs arise The residents reside in a hotellike atmosphere in their own apartments with their own furniture go to the mall grocery stores theater and anywhere else they so desire They make to have sirfifla iffe experiences Todays senior has worked hard to provide children and grandchil dren with the opportunity and vision to fulfill their own goals The families want only the very best for them They want then parents to enjoy themselves and all of the amenities they so often deprived themselves of to provide for their families Retirement liv ing is truly a step in the right direction Sis is no doubt facing a diffi cult decision Regardless of how nice the retirement community is it will never be the memoryfilled home in which she raised her family However life is a series of tradeoffs She is already feeling the burden of caring for her house and at a loss as to why her chil dren are not more available Sis probably has a delightful brood but what will she expect of them if her health declines and she finds herself able to handle less and less Taking this first step is a big one I meet people daily who are hesitant to take the initial step The majority of mature adults feel they are not ready for retire ment living Yet these same folks come into rny office six months after theyve moved in to tell me how happy they are and how they wish they had made the move years earlier KELLI KNOX HOUSTON DEAR KELLI Thank you for an informative letter I received mail from angry read ers scolding me because I didnt criticize Siss children for failing to help their mother with maintaining her property However I seriously doubt that if theyre unwilling or unable to do it they would appreciate a lecture from me Its far more important that Sis be empowered to control her own destiny and if shes not getting the attention shed like from her children to develop an independent social life of her own That is why I urged her to sell the real estate before it becomes rundown and to give serious thought to a retirement community targeted to active seniors CLUB NOTES Island benefit Photo submitted New Braunfels Service League will host its
