Whether your parents decided to make a move when they retired or you relocated to pursue your career, managing a long-distance relationship with aging family members can be a challenge. If you find yourself considering whether it is time to put down roots closer to your senior loved ones, this guide from the Sadle Home Selling Team can help you make that decision.
Data cited on LongTermCare.gov shows that a person who is 65 or over has about a 70% chance of needing long-term care services at some point.

You can still get outside and enjoy nature… just keep your social distance.
Thankfully, spring time in Portland, Oregon and the surrounding areas is a great time to be outside. With this lockdown and quarantine, though, it’s necessary for sanity! But, fresh air and exercise are also good for the health and stress and keeping healthy is vitally important right now.
