Marcia Gelfand

“Downsizing is hard but it’s very freeing. It’s best to have the help of a friend who isn’t emotionally attached to your possessions.” Continue reading

Marcia is a New York native, who lived in La Jolla for 40 years with her husband, Stanley, before he passed away. She moved into a two-bedroom cottage in Manhattan Beach in 2013. Marcia scaled down when she left La Jolla and did it again before moving to Fountainview. “Downsizing is hard but it’s very freeing,” she says. “It’s best to have the help of a friend who isn’t emotionally attached to your possessions.”

Marcia’s La Jolla home appreciated in value and she used the proceeds from the sale to fund her entrance fee to Fountainview. To free herself financially, she chose a smaller one-bedroom apartment. ”For one reasonable monthly fee at Fountainview, I take care of so many of my expenses allowing me to travel and give gifts to my family.”

How does Marcia feel about being a single person moving to a new community? “I feel good about it,” she says. “Everybody came in new and ready to meet other people. That’s a real positive for me as a single person.”
