What is the best way to downsize….60 + with 2 Mothers needing support.
We don’t want to do to our children what our mothers’ have to us. They both continue in their own houses and don’t want to change that. I am carer for my Mum locally, Mother in Law has her own house and has help 4 hours journey away. Our house is a good sized 3 bed semi suitable for a family with only the 2 of us here now. We aim to downsize, possibly to a house in a retirement complex – idea is to be prepared for older age. We don’t want to have to maintain a property with large garden any more. We still have to maintain our mother’s properties…. We want to get rid of a lot of ‘stuff’ which is holding us back.
