A joint study released by AIG Life and Retirement and AgeWave reveals that older Americans are changing their views on retirement.

When Bob and Paula Ganss moved into their Plano, Tex., house nine years ago, the couple undertook a number of home improvement projects to make it their own.

“Every fixture, every light, every fan has been replaced,” says Bob. “We finally got the house the way we wanted it.”

In 2010, Fred Wiegand and his wife Nan moved from Texas to Fox Run, an Erickson Living community in Novi, Mich. The Wiegands had been living in a gated community in Texas for the beginning of their retirement and decided they wanted to move back to Michigan, where they had spent most of their adult lives and where most of their children and grandchildren currently live.

Do you often see your doctor while you’re out for lunch? Has he met your grandchildren? Do you swap recipes with her?

Richard Taylor’s lifelong interest in birding began when he was a teenage Boy Scout trying to earn his Bird Study Merit Badge in Memphis, Tenn.

“I was fortunate to study under Ben B. Coffey, an avid birder who encouraged my interest in the sport,” says Richard. “I’ve been watching birds ever since.”

By the time Jack and Fran Gleeson moved to Eagle’s Trace in July 2012, the couple had a manila file folder bulging with information about the West Houston Erickson Living community.

“We joined the priority list when Eagle’s Trace opened in 2005,” says Jack. “I collected a lot of marketing materials over the years.”
