Unfortunately Yes, sometimes the facilities are so overwhelmed that it can be very frustrating!

There was a discussion about how this problem might be solved last year.

Wonderful area, know it well. Just came back from 10 days in Moreton, The Redesdale Arms.

So Cotswolds and TV, great way to live.

I understand your standpoint, rivaridger, and I have had a life-threatening illness, over a decade ago. I decided to balance a short plane ride and/or drive to one of the noted healthcare facilities against the ability to live happily in a place I really like. Setting sudden tragic episodes aside, that we might not survive anywhere (stroke, heart attack), I feel that I could get to a place of notable health care in a short amount of time. I'm thinking mainly of cancer, I guess.

In the meantime, I plan to enjoy my time in TV and hope for the best, rather than live close to someplace not pleasing to me just in case I might get sick.

But again, I understand your point of view, and I may not be thinking of all the circumstances surrounding certain illnesses. Please don't take my point of view as a rejection of yours. I hope and pray you are doing well.

We have lived all over the world and for us, The Villages is hands down the best retirement location we have ever seen.

Our village is a ten minute drive from M.I.M. Our grandson goes to the Cotswold Academy in Bourton.
Yes we are very lucky to have both places in our lives.

I missed Ohio with my every fiber when we came here. I thought about my beautiful gardens continually and the evenings outside on the shores of Lake Erie. After, much thought and a bit of time, I realized that what I was missing I could never get back. It was my youth that I was missing. I still miss it but I put it in perspective and I have moved on.

15 years and no regrets.
I even acclimated to playing golf when it is 90 degrees.
While not a regret I will say there are some medical specialties and services that are lacking. However we have had no problem finding what we need within an hours ride from TV.
Key to complete satisfaction?
Avoid/mitigate surprises....do your home work choosing where your new home is located in TV.

Post Regrets

Can you give us more reason as to why you have regrets? I don't have regrets but often miss my previous life. After a period of adjustment I find TV to be a much better place with nicer people around.

Do you regret moving to TV?
Why?
Will you move back home? Or, to another area?

If you got over your regret, how did you do it?

Thank you.
