Many times the hustle and bustle of urban life can get you down.  The smog, two hour traffic jams, and ever-increasing road rage all lead to a stressful state of living.  If this sounds like your life then moving to a small town might be among your best places to retire.

  1. Germany was the first country to introduce retirement in 1889. Nowadays, a range of older people’s organizations exist to encourage retired people to take part in activities.

  2. Hi there !
    Thank you for the great places ,I wish to live my retirement years in peace and contemplation after I finish all my responsibilies towards my family,hope you could talk about some good places in Asia.

  3. I write for baby boomer consumers. There are many steps boomers should take before they decide to move from their homes to a retirement community or another town.

    Many boomers want to age in place, to stay in their current homes with assistance from care givers and workers to help them maintain their yards.

  4. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic info being shared freely out there.

  5. What a fantastic resource that you have made available. I would imagine many people will benefit from this guide you have put together. I am always concerned about what I can do for my mother as she is getting older. So many questions to ask and it is all dependent on her health and state of mind when we hit this point. Thank you again for this information.

  6. I agree, when it’s time for me the 55 and older communities that offer maintenance free living is the only way to go. No more lawn mowing and more fishing sounds good to me. The Daytona Beach area of Florida seems just small enough not to deal with traffic but has enough to offer.

  7. I really like the idea of finding a retirement community that offers an active lifestyle. My grandmother is definitely not the type of person that can sit still for long. Hopefully, I can find a lively place for her to stay that isn’t too far from home.
