Who is in charge of your time? You or your house? Think about it… you say you are independent, but then you cancel plans with friends to wait on the plumber. You have to come home early from your travels to check the home for storm damage. You have to cut family time short so that your to-do list gets managed. Sound familiar?  Is that really independence? So…who is really in charge? You or your house? It sounds like your house may be calling all of the shots and dictating what should be the best years of your life. Sick of it? Of course you are! That’s why more and more seniors in the Fort Worth area are determined to start calling the shots by making the move to Stevenson Oaks’ independent living community.
