It might be a good time to have your home inspected by a certified home inspector. By doing this you can find out the condition of your home and whether any major work needs to be done or will need to be done in the coming years. This will help you to know how much money you should start setting aside to pay for this work. It is also a good idea to have a separate savings account so that money is put aside just for home maintenance and repair work. In this way, you will minimize the stress when you are faced with large household expenses.
Are you thinking of having some remodeling work done? It might be a wise idea to incorporate some features that would make life easier for someone who had limited mobility. A well planned out design could include features like this without being too obvious.
Another important thing to consider is letting those closest to you, such as family members, know your plans for the home, this way they can make the right decisions for you if you are not able to make them for yourself.
While making these kinds of plans may not be something you want to do as a newly retired person, they will help to eliminate stress and concern if the time comes when you can no longer get around like you can now.
