Benedictine Manor (run by sisters) in Cullman, Alabama (for independent retirement living).

Casa Calderon apartments for those age 62 or older or disabled (rent is based on income) in Tallahassee, Florida and best of all is right next door to the Co-Cathedral.

Taking early retirement is based mostly on how much you were able to put away during your working years.

Agree. Before I quit my job, and became her full time caregiver.. I had been looking into this as a possibility for my Mom.

I found one in the Atlanta area, where we now reside. I don't know if it was similar to those mentioned above.. or something different, entirely; but they wanted $165,000.00 (approx.) to move her IN (would have been a small "condo" like unit of her own). Then, it was another $2,000.00 a month for her meals, utilities, activities and transportation.. etc.

I was like at the price. Had to forget about it.

There are two new sites in Lower Alabama (Mobile-Portier Place and Foley-Hamlet), operated by Mercy Medical. Go to www.mercymedical.com, or search for the name and city.
