    Lois and Lon

    There is a place here in Clarksville ( Providence assisted living) That charges $3,000 per month for one or $4,000 per month for 2.

    That seems a lot cheaper than what I think you two are paying. I think $4,000 per month for my wife and I is very affordable.

    I've been in the place and it seems nice.

    It's an option to consider

    Sheldon, I do believe the cost of living is much lower in Arkansas that in either California or New Jersey. Sounds like a good deal, but not many of us can pack up and change horses at this point in life. Appreciate the information though and others may wish to consider this for future use.

    I think that Sheldon was just explaining what might be a possibility for him and his wife, @Lois Winters. He has shared with us that she has had ongoing health problems, and so has Sheldon; so living out on their beautiful farm is not going to continue to be possible for them, plus his wife is going to need a caretaker besides just Sheldon.
    He has mentioned moving to California where their daughter is at, but that is a long move, and a lot to deal with. Finding a suitable place near where they live now seems like it might be an excellent choice for Sheldon.
