Preparing to Relocate
Relocation from a Jewish perspective.
Some communities have more supports for seniors than others. If you are forced to move away from ailing parents, use these resources to find out if it's better to allow your parent(s) to remain with communal supports or relocate with you. United Jewish Communities Washington office spearheads a National Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs) Aging in Place Initiative.
Moving to a new place can be challenging, but asking the right questions can make all the difference. If your move takes you to a place where the Jewish community doesn't meet your needs, be a change agent, and make it your ideal place. Be an asset to your community wherever you choose to live, and take advantage of the wonderful resources that many communities already have to offer.
