ON OUR WAY TO WEALTHY: Whether you reference aging as growing older, more mature, wiser or seasoned, the common denominator is that we must all age. It is a fact of life.
Today, there are approximately 40 million people age 65 or older in America, which represents about 13 percent of the population. However, by 2030 there will be over 72 million or almost 19 percent of the population in this bracket.
A staple of our basic needs in life is housing and as we grow older our housing needs will change. While we hope to maintain our lifestyle, health, mobility and financial strength along the way, things may not always develop as desired.
