Hi: My name is Donald Kuss and I am seriously considering relocating to Thailand (Phuket) when the borders open again. I am a retired police officer and firefighter from New York and am looking forward to meeting as many expats as possible. Thank you !

Hello, my name is Robert Verdonck. I am 76 years old. I am married to my lovely Thai woman. I am already a resident of the region of Khon Kaen. By the end of the year we want to live permanently in our village (Ban Khai). I love Thailand. The only thing that worried me a little is: can i find a health or hospital insurance at my age? Does someone has some experience in this matter. I thank you already for a reply. Have a nice day!

Younger Old Guy
I am a 57yr old handicapped obese guy who needs to find a safe and fun place to see if I can become a healthier person before it is too late for me. At least a 3 month stay, minimum.
Mobility Issues- currently walking 2-5 minutes may be too much-I wish to be able to get to a point where walking all day everywhere is easy , a big goal I know, but I can dream
My plan is simple really, I think it is, suggestions always welcome though.

1. Aquatic therapy daily, yes getting into a pool everyday once or twice for about an hour. This is reccomended from Doctors to help me from doing any damage or falling down and injuring myself. By using the pool I can build up my cardio and get my muscles moving again after months of no movements and no physical therapy at all, my fault of course, but I am now ready to make changes, 1 day at a time.

1a. I may need a person to help with this therapy, not sure how best to handle this, or who to find to help, a true physical therapist, ( this option will be pricey, maybe too much), or a neighbor or new friend and workout buddy, if possible? Or just someone in the beginning to help me to get to the pool, to make sure I go, and help in and out of the pool, if needed, and back safely in my condo or house. I hope it is a pool not too crowded, or with too many kids or young partiers, I prefer a few quiet hours, if possible.

2. Eat better and more healthy foods , as well as smaller portions of it. I wish to have lots of fish, chicken and eggs , as I am not really a person who likes too many vegatables, but yes I am will to try and change that, maybe some local people can teach healthier local foods. I will bring about a months worth of some diet food to help me also.

That is my plan , told you it was very simple, pool therapy and eating better, I master those two things, a better life will be not too far behind.

Any help in area will be greatly appreciated, maybe you know a place somewhere else in the World that would be perfect for me in this 3 month journey to being happy again, and not so misreable and trapped inside forever.

I'm originally from NY too but not there now, and looking at a 2+ year time frame for moving. I've been to Thailand many times, so I'm not worried so much about adjusting as the potential hassles dealing with immigration, as I've heard it can be difficult for some. Have you been to Phuket already?

Definitely try to get a place with a swimming pool and near the ocean if you eventually plan on doing some beachcombing or ocean swimming. Lots of places in Thailand that fit that description, some as low as $200 a month on a lease. And you can always get a cheap uber ride or songthaew bus or tuktuk if you can't walk too much. Seafood is plentiful there and relatively cheap. Pork is more popular than chicken, but you can find chicken too. I would recommend the steamed chicken as it's probably lower in fat and healthier than fried. Thay call it khao min gai. Just chicken and rice and maybe a garnish. Some fresh fruit for dessert and you're good :)
