A new trend appears to be growing in continuing care and retirement communities.
Retirees may need to consider if their retirement home has a liquor license. Surveys show that those aged 60 and older like to drink. 50% of men and 39% of women polled were almost daily drinkers while 5.9% of men and 0.9% of women reported binge drinking at least once a month.
With some retirement communities now serving beer, wine, and even top-shelf liquor, retirees who like to drink likely have one more question to ask themselves when deciding where to live.
