Assisted living communities offer a wide range of services and function under different operational models, from bare-bones small group homes to plush apartment complex-style digs with hundreds of units.

Before shopping for an assisted living spot, consider other potential senior living arrangements.

Use our guide to local assisted living to identify a handful of prospective communities, then call them and ask a lot of questions. There’s much at stake, so you need to choose smartly.

To get your home in shape for your senior years, you can retrofit spaces with things like grab bars and non-slip rugs, or renovate rooms using principles of “universal design” to make spaces accessible to people of different physical abilities, sizes, and ages.

The best estate-sale outfits employ staffers with accurate appraisal skills and that will widely advertise your sale to bring in lots of buyers (remember, you get paid only for stuff that sells).

After you hire a liquidator, its staffers will come in and appraise, price, and arrange the house’s contents. Here’s what to expect from the experience, from contract to after-sale check.

Traditional, in-person sales aren’t your only option for liquidating a house’s worth of possessions. You can hire a company to hawk your stuff online or via auction or just accept a lump-sum payout.
