You don’t need a retirement home… You need a great home for retirement!
Francisca’s new book Nesting for Empty Nesters®: The Vacation Style Living™ Approach to Aging in Place can show you how!
“I have developed a deep passion for using smart design to create a high quality of life for my clients as they transition from being bustling families with young children to empty nesters and, ultimately, to retirees starting one of the greatest chapters of life,” said Alonso, a Certified Aging in Place Specialist. “My goal is to provide empty nesters with a simplified lifestyle, a beautiful vacation-like retreat, and an easy to navigate space, so that they can enjoy these special years, welcome their families and explore new activities and passions.”
Research shows that by age 65 an astounding 87% of adults want to stay in their current home and community as they age. Still, 90% of homeowners will procrastinate in preparing their home for aging in place and risk being forced into last minute, limited, and costly decisions by a health issue. Nesting for Empty Nesters® shows readers how to use smart design to prepare their home now for a better quality of life in retirement and beyond.
