When’s the ‘right’ time to move nearer the children, assuming that’s what they want? Logically, sooner rather than later, though almost always it’s done too late, and I’m as guilty of that as anyone. Our problem is finding the right place in East Yorkshire - and not for want of looking. The house we have now is absolutely perfect. We designed it, with an architect of course, specifically for old age and it’s perfect in every respect for that. Wide internal doors, bedrooms downstairs as well as upstairs, plenty of space etc, but a bit of a distance from the children. Not an impossible distance, but nearer would be better for them. Good doctors too, and that’s very important. If the right place came up we’d probably make the move, but there are other factors, often overlooked - what happens if the children have to move for work reasons? Your house sounds wonderful Harry. I still live 10 minutes drive from my childhood home where my parents still live! My sister on the other hand lives nearly 2 hours away and has moved about a dozen times! I wonder if anyone can ‘beat’ me? I’ve only lived in 3 houses my whole life! My childhood home and 2 homes with my husband, current one for 25 years.
