I am a retired physician with three adult children, one of whom is pushing my wife of 55 yrs. and myself to move into a retirement community. We have looked at over 15 Florida communities, and have not been thrilled with what we see--too many canes, and walkers. I am 80, play golf at least twice weekly, and work out in a gym four days a week. I do not feel I am ready for independent living at this time even though my wife thinks it is probably a good idea. I also balk at the idea of gifting a facility close to 200K, which is what it really amounts to. I see many people my age doing just fine without moving into independent living. Is there anyone out there on my side?
