Yes, of course, go and be glad you have other options. Those places scare the bejesus out of me. I visited a client at an upscale retirement apt. complex, the living room was soooo small & windowless, made my 95-year-old studio look extra spacious, airy and sunny.
Interesting about the mailing list. How do they find out people have turned 50 and send out all the AARP stuff? Years ago when we were first dealing with mom's issues I subscribed to the AARP magazine because I was curious about what she was reading. I must have been about 30 at the time but lied about my age declaring myself 87. When I stopping renewing, all the old-foggy mailings stopped also.
