Moving and death are two of the most significant, life-altering events. It’s stressful. When you lose someone you love—whether a spouse you share decades of memories with or a special person who lived with you—often you’re confronting the decision: Should I move? Do I need to move for financial reasons? Would a move be a positive way to move forward with life a loved one would have wanted?
At Upside, we understand that these complex choices often intersect. You’re dealing with grief and a household of reminders. You’re on your own now, and that changes the picture from a social, emotional and financial standpoint.
Exhale. Moving after the loss of a loved one can be a very good thing. In fact, Upside members who have made the transition from living alone in a home to joining a vibrant community where they’re at the helm of deciding what amenities they want and need say the change gave them an opportunity to heal, reinvent themselves, find social connections and thrive.
