Considering a Housing Change?

There is so much to consider when looking for a new place to call home.

Often it’s not by choice, which can make it a traumatic experience. We want to help. Call 920-448-4300

What are the Reasons for Changing Housing?

The best place to start to gather information about your options is to think about what is prompting this change.

Maybe you:

  • Find it becoming more difficult, or are just too busy or tired of:
    • Completing home maintenance, yard work, snow removal
    • Cooking, laundry, cleaning
  • Want to downsize and don’t know where to start
  • Are looking for more social opportunities
  • Have had a fall
  • Are in need of some personal care
  • Are not happy with your current situation

Stay in your Home or Move?

You love your home and neighborhood but are wondering if it’s time to move.
Family and friends are suggesting a move. But you wonder if you can afford and receive the help you need to stay at home.  What if home modifications can make your home safer to avoid a fall?
These are important considerations.
