Where should the senior move too?

Seniors face a number of important legal and financial decisions regarding their remaining years.  Decisions on whether they should move closer to be near their adult children; move into retirement or assisted living community.   Also, a growing percentage of older adults are choosing to sell their dwellings, and reside with their adult children   Obviously, with the challenges of today’s economy, this can make economical sense.  The older adult often provides financial assistance by making the selling their home, and in return a home care setting, companionship, and security. 

However, this arrangement can lead to major issues. If a senior cannot look after them self, do the adult children stay at home to provide care? What is the financial relationship? Family dynamics? Sibling rivalry, when the parent is gone, who receives the inheritance, caregiver versus remainder of family? Who will pay for a caregiver, if the parent’s money has been used to build an addition? And many more challenges.

I’m not saying that this should not be performed, however, think, review, and consider the potential issues before you act.
