Should I stay or should I go? Moving plans of older adults
Data from a longitudinal study of older adults in an upstate New York county (N = 333) show that poor housing fit increases the likelihood that older adults are currently considering a move, as does lower residential satisfaction. Those adults who said only that they might consider moving focused on health transitions that might signal a need for a new housing situation. Residential satisfaction predicts actual moves even when controlling for moving plans. Older adults may be pushed to make a move by a crisis, but those older adults planning moves tend to be pulled into housing arrangements with desirable features. © 2006 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
