Settling In

My First Year in a Retirement Community
  • By Richard Morgan
Product Description

Settling In is a collection of meditations that came out of the journals of Richard Morgan when, at age 74, he moved to a retirement community in Pennsylvania. Reflecting on his experience, the author identified three major stages in his spiritual journey:

- Initial excitement and euphoria;

- Second thoughts and regrets;

- Discerning his life in the community.

These meditations will be helpful for those who are considering entering a continuing care/retirement community and for the adult children and care givers of persons facing such a decision. The author’s generous sharing of his own experience will help prepare those considering a life transition and also help their loved ones to understand the struggles older adults go through as they seek to make a place their home.


Richard Morgan has a passion for enhancing the lives of older adults. Upon reading his latest book, my desire is to share it with others for it is comprehensive and “rings true.” He speaks of his own insightful experiences in making the transition to retirement community living, with all the accompanying challenges and joys. Dr. Morgan’s narrative offers encouragement and support to those who are making this journey.
