Every year Prudential publishes its Retirement Quality of Life Index for England and Wales. It is eagerly awaited by thousands of older people because it tells you the best place to live if you want a happy, healthy life.
There is a bit of a problem, however, they keep changing their advice. In May 2010 Prudential advocated Dorset, but two years later, Somerset was top of their list. Later in 2017, Berkshire became the best place to go. Now, West Sussex heads up the index. (See other posts on this subject by clicking on “Demographics” in the TAG CLOUD).
This is a blinking nuisance unless you have a mobile home. What’s more, all that moving every few years can get a bit stressful. It also costs a fortune in removal fees and all that lifting can’t do your back any good. Especially with all the clutter we have to move from house to house.
I have a better solution. The GrumbleSmiles Mass Migration would involve everyone over 65 living in the South of England moving to the North of England ! I know the climate may be a bit cooler and wetter, but the lower property values would allow people to release substantial equity with which to live the high life.
