Lois B writes “I’m a very solitary person. I like being on my own. I like my own space and my own home. Yet I can’t afford to live alone anymore. I would like to find a place on a property that will give me what I have now but at a much lower rate. Most people need the income from a cottage or flatlet which makes it difficult for seniors to find a place to live as they would like to. Close to others for emergencies, yet still alone.”
