Retirement should be a time where you get to do everything you have always wanted to when you were younger, but never got the chance to. Transitioning to senior living can make that possible for many reasons. Aging in place can make older adults vulnerable to social isolation, and if you have ceased to drive for safety reasons, this can mean you are virtually stuck at home with limited opportunities for socialization. When deciding on a retirement destination, consider Columbia, SC. In this article, we share with you some reasons to consider retiring in Columbia, SC.
