Point blank answer: There is no such thing as too much funds. With more charities and people needing a leg up, I'm sure there are ways to wisely invest in communities. 

As to the necessities, its simple. A place that I can manuever thru when I age, that is secure and close to community aides ( hospital, fire co, ambulance, market). You get the idea. Food clothing, shelter...the basics.

the rest of the funds would be for health related savings and survival. Be they for the family members or close friends.

~~It often seems impossible, til it's done.

      No washer and dryer in the living room or dining room?

      Did you miss the part where they're trying to keep the whole place to no more than 2400 square feet?

        The limitations of the 2000 square foot house I've got now is that the bathrooms, spare bedrooms, and laundry room could be a bit bigger, and my office is just half of a spare bedroom. Like most houses it could use a bit more closet space, too. Maybe a separate media room, but for me that would just mean perhaps 200 SF with a couple of good recliners a reasonable distance from speakers and about a 40" TV. Based on that, I doubt I'd go much over 3000 SF, not including the attached garage. A garage and a small barn might add about 1200SF or so to the grand total.

        The yard would certainly be a bit bigger. Making sure that none of the neighbors are less than 1500 feet away requires about 200 acres as a minimum.

          I never want a house too big for the relatives to consider renting a room at the local Days Inn or Holiday Inn when visiting.  My relatives like to sneak around looking into all the rooms for personal stuff that's none of the business and some of them even have sticky fingers.

          That's why you get a house where the rooms have bathrooms connected to them. Then just lock the door from the outside.

          My relatives aren't like that, though. They typically mind their own business so no real issue.
