I would expect that if you decided to move back you would be looking at an Independent Living or Assisted Living environment and renting, not buying. Leave your future options open and make those decisions when the time comes, a lot can change in 10 years.

What is your illness that you say could be making you indecisive? I'd address that and if you think your illness could hamper your decision making, I'd explore input from family members and even help from an Elder Law attorney and financial planner. They can examine your assets and explain your options and tax consequences and even other matters that you may not have considered.

I have only read about Parkinson's. No one in my family has had it. From what I have read, the progression varies so greatly among individuals. It's difficult to gauge how fast it will progress, because it may take many years with some people. What does your husband's doctor say?

savings dwindling a little due to redundancy a move would mean financial security but yet not allow to buy back into this area if need be, He would go of course if i said but im just afraid would i be isolating him, how long does one stay reasonably well with parkinsons. Would this be a good decision , is it my illness making me indecisive . Has anybody moved and regretted it...

Is it you or your husband that has Parkinson's? What would the move accomplish? How are your over all finances? I'm sure you don't want to impoverish one or the other?

What does your husband want? Unless he is very much older than you worrying about how to spend your final years seems to be a long way off, even with you having Parkinson's. I don't see that it has to be an either/or decision, you could spend time travelling while you are able and then retire back amongst family when you are ready to settle down.
