Turning to somebody else for help may be difficult for some people to do. However, as people age, move through their 60s and into the 70s, and well into their 80s, the likelihood that they may need help with certain tasks increases. That’s what senior care provides. Support. Assistance. The kind that aging men and women can benefit from, but where do they turn for the support? A lot of people will immediately think about family. Maybe a spouse, sibling, or adult child who lives in the area. That seems to make sense, at least on the surface. But what often happens when a family caregiver begins supporting this aging parent or other loved one, they discourage certain activities. That means changes are taking place. The senior has to give up things they might enjoy. Or, they may have no way to get to visit with friends, go to the park, and do other things that were part of their normal routine.
Demographic changes and the pandemic are propelling consumer-goods companies to take a fresh look at a group of shoppers who are often ignored: the elderly. As people live longer and have fewer babies, the number of over-65s surpassed those under five globally for the first time in 2018, according to United Nations data, and the trend has accelerated since. The pandemic has disproportionately harmed older people, which executives say has highlighted the importance of staying healthy later in life.

Relocating in retirement is a rite of passage for many Americans, especially those with warmer climes on their minds.
But before you move for better weather, to be closer to the grandkids, or whatever, you should take the temperature of your budget — and how taxes and the cost of living will have a lasting impact in your golden years. Lower housing costs, for example, in a particular state could make your retirement savings last longer.
You also need to factor in state and local taxes in your destination location. They will certainly play a role in your bottom line.
