My husband and I moved to the Villages a couple of months ago.
I never thought of myself moving to a retirement community, but that’s exactly what The Villages is.
It’s a large city that was made for retired community members. The Villages is located outside of Ocala, and central Florida. There are a lot of unique services that are available to residents in The Villages. All of the shops and stores offer delivery services. This service is to help residents that can’t get in and out of their homes very easily. I have a lot of problems with my knees and it’s difficult for me to walk and drive. It’s not difficult for me to ride around on a golf cart, so I have a really nice one that I use to move about. I can take my golf cart all over The Villages, because there are passes that are specifically and uniquely made for golf carts and small vehicles. I was out at the store a couple of days ago and when I returned, my husband was looking at the heat pump. He used to be a service technician when we were young and working. My husband hasn’t fixed a heat pump problem in at least 20 years. He still thought he had the knowledge to figure out what was wrong with ours. I suggested calling a heat pump company in The Villages as soon as I got home. Unfortunately, my husband did not want to give up on the repair until he knew for sure that he was not going to be able to fix the problem.
