Whether they are forced to, or whether they plan to, each year more and more seniors move into retirement homes. In 2000, Peg Collison was one of them. Peg left the town of San Mateo, California, where she’d been living for almost 35 years, and moved two hours away into a newly built retirement community in Davis, California. Peg’s son, Dan, gave his mom a tape recorder and asked her document her transition. Together, Peg and Dan produced a four-part series on Peg’s move and what it meant to her and her family.
