Resources for Exploring Retirement Options

from Jill D Kearney, Senior Living Expert

Overwhelmed by your retirement living options? Jill recently released The Ultimate Planner for Finding Your Next Home in Retirement - a full online course to guide individuals and couples 55+ in making the big decision to move in retirement.

Drawn from Jill's 12 years in the Senior Move Management industry, her involvement on national and local boards, personal experience, PLUS research and feedback from her sellout live seminar series, The Ultimate Planner will take a deep dive into designing and finding your next home in retirement--without the overwhelm!

Jill Kearney, Founder/CEO

This six module, video-based course comprehensively covers the process of identifying the best features for your perfect home in retirement. It will help you consider location, structure, finances and even the purpose you want to live out in your life after work and kids. And in the end, this course will help you evaluate real homes and then choose your best home for retirement.

The course is also jam packed with 18 downloadable planning activities, worksheets, checklists, and resource lists to help you along your journey.

If that sounds like a LOT, don’t worry! Jill's unique process is broken down into six bite-sized, completely "do-able" modules. Her process is SO simple, you can actually implement each step in your own life right away (or, whenever you’re ready!)
