Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to the Top 10 questions active seniors have when considering downsizing:
It’s only easier to stay put if your home is right for the current stage of your life. Do you still have pets or children living at home and really need that big yard? Are the stairs getting harder to navigate? Are you storing stuff in the attic and basement because you need it or because you just don’t know what to do with it? Your ideal home should provide you with more freedom, more convenience, better care, and less worry. Masonic Village at Burlington will definitely provide you with all of that. Can you say the same for your current home?
