Hi everyone. Please allow me to introduce myself. Eleven years ago I set up a web based business associated with retirement housing for the over 55's mainly in Spain. The business is now run by my wife although I still have some input in a purely advisory capacity.
Since my recent cancer scare, (and I praise God for my recovery) it has made me take more of an active role and inspired me into looking in a new direction, that of providing home services that some of the over 55's might consider or indeed need rather than thinking of purchasing a property on a purpose built retirement development.
I have always had a passion for Portugal, and we have the opportunity to set up a retirement village in Southern Algarve where people could actually stay in their own homes, in familiar surroundings where there are already in place, all the necessary amenities etc.
What I would like to know is, would there be anyone interested enough to pledge their support for this kind of enterprise. There are certain grants available for the project which I would like to pass on these benefits to those interested in order to keep the costs of purchase of a unit and the services down to an affordable level. This project would certainly keep my mind off what I am experiencing at the moment.
Your comments would be welcomed as long as they are constructive.
