    POST SURGERY REHAB - had to move to one story place

    My daughter has offered her home which is great - but I am at a loss as to if I should sell my townhouse or move into her empty home. Being a senior retired physically limited person - I cannot even handle townhouse stairs - - but paying for both places scares me Any good advice?? I can't go upstairs and son cannot either.

      Before selling your own real state I would try a couple of months in the new space....only to ensure if you get used to it and comfortable......another possibility is to rent your space so you cold have an income at same time of being better accommodated at your daughter's space....God bless your daughter, you and all of us

      I am 61 without help and I have stairs. I am stage IIIa. Can you stay in the other house permanently? At this point I would love a one story but I can't afford to move. Maybe you could make your own home more accessible? I wouldn't want to pay for two houses. Maybe list the advantages and disadvantages of each. Typically one list is longer. Good luck

      If there is no hope that you will ever be able to do stairs, you should probably sell your townhouse and move into a 1 story. I live in a ranch, with first-floor laundry. Why do they build anything else? Everyone gets older eventually, a single floor will be your best bet in the long run.
