As 40-somethings in the midst of our own parenting journeys, my husband and I are taking on a growing responsibility in caring for our own parents. My parents relocated to Charlotte several years ago and are thankfully healthy and active. My mother-in-law who requires extra care will also be moving to Charlotte this summer.
Our situation is not uncommon. In fact after touring several retirement communities in Charlotte this year, I’ve learned it’s becoming quite the norm. As the area continues to grow, seniors moving into the area to be near family are an increasing part of that trend.
