I think the idea of putting all your plans and information in a book or on other media for your children is a wonderful idea. We haven't actually done that, but we think we have a plan.

Even though we are "youngsters" in The Villages we moved here because our son is severely disabled, but he is very social. TheVillages is perfect for our needs now, and we have a future plan made too!

My mom is here in The Villages in her own patio villa, and she's 83. Still very independent, drives her own car, does her own housecleaning, etc ( I wish she'd do mine too! ;-) )

Anyway, in a few years she says she'll be ready for assisted living, and there are many new ones being built nearby.....that's good.

Our son will need skilled nursing in a few years, and we have become ok with that too.

We have one grown up son who will handle all our needs someday for us but we also have a contingency plan with a trust to take over in case he is unable to do it.

Does anyone know if this is part of "The Villages" Group or a different organization all together? It looks like it is in your community.

Freedom Pointe at The Villages | Florida Independent Senior Living | Retirement Community

If it is a different organization, do member of the CCRC retain their Villages privileges?

Better yet, anyone have any experience with it??? Know anyone in it?

Thanks... I read the page on the link I posted but somehow overlooked the comment about TV services and privileges (I bolded it in your quote).

Default People Plan, God Laughs

I am not making fun of anyone planning, or thinking about the future. I have tried in the past to plan major life decisions, and the more I think and worry, it seems the less control I have of the situation. While I am the kind of person who likes to be organized and informed, things just don't seem to work out that way.
So far, I have done the best I can with what I know, but there are too many variables in life to be completely prepared. People get sick and incapacitated, or die unexpectedly, or hurricanes or earthquakes happen and change lives. You can have 10 children and not be able to depend on any. Most families there is one child who has to do all the caregiving. You can have financial advisors who take all your money. A lot of assisted living, or continuing care facilities change ownership and change in quality.
So I have a basic plan for now. My papers are in order, my finances are more difficult to predict but somewhat stable. I can only hope and pray for the best and try to enjoy life in the moment.
Good luck! I hope you can find the answers you need.
