Your Second Home - Making the Dream a Reality
For many of us, the dream of a second home has been floating around in our minds for a long time. It could be a place to get away and relax, a way to be closer to family, or a retreat to beat the summer heat or cold winter months. Whatever the purpose, when one wants to take it past the dream stage into reality, the question marks pile up:
- What location?
- How much effort will it take to maintain two places?
- Should I rent our buy?
- How much will it cost?

Finding Your New Home After 50
As we age, it seems a “sense of place” takes on greater significance. In our younger years, we may have moved around after leaving the family home. That nomadic pattern, perhaps, was symbolic of our search for a path in life. Once settling into a consistent lifestyle, we found ourselves living for longer stretches of time in one location or another. Then comes the time in later life when for various reasons, we consider (or are forced to consider) yet another relocation.
This podcast series looks from various angles at moving after age 50. Whether you want to “age in place” in your current residence, desire a new home, or are compelled by circumstances to move, this eBook will help as you ponder the pros and cons in the decision-making process.

Planning and Paying for Long-Term Care
The “gray tsunami” of baby boomers keeps rolling along. The U.S. Census Bureau predicts the youngest members of this generation, born from 1946-1964, will turn sixty-five by 2030. With 73 million members, boomers account for 21.45% of the U.S. population.
This generation is already having a massive impact on senior living. In 2015, about 8.3 million Americans required some form of long-term care. Unfortunately, that care doesn’t come cheaply. Annual costs can run into thousands of dollars for many families.
Yet, adequate planning for these potential costs often gets overlooked.
This podcast series, presented by Cantissimo Senior Living, stresses the importance of planning for long-term care
costs and provides information on several funding alternatives. Armed with this knowledge, older adults and their families can formulate plans that will lead to better health decisions and greater peace of mind.
