Raleigh, NC, June 30, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- A second edition of the bestselling book “What’s the Deal with Retirement Communities?” by Brad Breeding, CFP has been released.
Available from Amazon in both paperback and digital Kindle formats, this book examines many of the common questions asked by soon-to-be retirees and their adult children about the various senior housing options–topics such as:
- The importance of planning ahead for the later phases of retirement
- Considerations when deciding between at-home care and a retirement community
- How to distinguish one type of retirement community from another
- The relationship between retirement communities and long-term care services
- Cost, payment and contract structures for retirement communities
The book’s author, Brad Breeding, is a renowned expert on the retirement community industry and a highly sought-after speaker on topics related to senior living. During 13 years spent as a financial advisor, Breeding recognized a need among older adults and their families for better information and guidance when researching retirement communities. In response to this consumer need, in 2012, he co-founded myLifeSite.net, a Raleigh, North Carolina-based company that develops online planning tools and resources to help seniors make informed choices about retirement living.
Based on his extensive industry research and experience, the first edition of “What’s the Deal with Retirement Communities?”
was released in 2014, and Breeding recalls being both surprised and pleased by the positive response he received. “It brings me great joy to know that the information provided in the book helps people to make better-informed decisions about their future,” he notes.
This second edition of the book expands upon the details offered by the original and includes updated information and data points. “Based on what I have continued to learn through our research at myLifeSite.net, and through my conversations with consumers, industry representatives, senior living financiers, and professional advisors, I have updated the book with new information and perspectives that speak to what I feel are some of the most important aspects you need to know about the rapidly changing senior living landscape, including a more detailed description of emerging senior living alternatives and a new chapter on the future of senior living,” Breeding explains.
The book is geared toward consumers–people who are approaching retirement and their adult children–but there is value for other audiences as well including financial planners, insurance agents, attorneys, and representatives of the senior living industry itself.
Breeding continues: “If you, a loved one, or a client is considering a retirement community but are confused about the options, I trust you'll find this book to be a helpful resource for providing the information you need to know to make the best decision.”
What Amazon readers are saying:
“...Just how useful is this book? We've also given copies to our two sons, a friend approaching retirement, and another friend concerned about her aging parent.”
“Five stars...A must for those over 65.”
“...This quick read is a great place to start when looking into retirement communities, and will provide valuable information throughout the entire research process.”
“The 'textbook' for understanding senior housing options.”
“A must read before you make a decision on any retirement living arrangement...Something every financial advisor and Long-Term Care Insurance Agent should read!”
