Choosing where to live when you retire is an important decision. Climate, health care and cost of living are a few factors to consider when deciding on your new home. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, less than 5 percent of those age 65 and older reside in nursing homes. Some may live in assisted-living facilities or in hospice, but the majority age at home, with spouses or relatives — or alone. In fact, according to numbers released in 2007 by the Administration on Aging, approximately 19 percent of men 65 and older and 38.6 percent of women of that age live alone in their homes.
