<i>Changing Face of America: Mom's Good Move</i> - Part Three

In the final part of our Changing Face of America story Mom's Good Move, the moving van comes to Peg Collison's house where she has lived for almost 30 years. She and her partner Chaz have decided to move to a retirement community. Moving day is sad and emotional---their new home is the "University Retirement community" in Davis, California--a new facility. The place is much better than the children had expected, except that all the residents are over the age of 65. Peg has to meet new friends, find a new church and new children to tutor. But rather than finding a sedate life, sitting around, reading books -- she is just as busy as she was in her old home -- and seems just as happy.
