Read Transcript
We learned by moving back into a private house in a community; it’s not easy to make friends. People are not interested (ordinary people of the normal age spread) are not interested in meeting old people. And it’s just difficult from that standpoint as well. And here we’re all here for the same reason and it’s much easier. The advice I’d give anybody considering to come here is, or if you’re already here and you have problems, move away for a year and see what it’s really like out there compared to what it’s like here. And I think you’ll discover that there’s a lot of comforts that you take for granted and security here that you just don’t have on the outside. I know we didn’t appreciate it enough the first time, even though we loved it, we didn’t appreciate it as much as we did coming back.
