Kalamazoo- Portage Seniors – As the baby boomers continue to age, it is becoming more and more important that they discover and research the options they have for living in their senior years.
Research and information provides senior citizens with the most choice and control over their decisions. The Veenstra Team is committed to helping Senior Citizens make wise housing choices. To that end, we always offer completely free home valuations to help seniors know how their home fits into the current market situation. We also are working on compiling a great directory of senior housing choices and services in the greater Kalamazoo area.
There are many options available for independent living as we age.
Here is a great list of services that you will want to learn about.
