I also imagine that since he's buds with the priest heading the boys' home that's since moved to Wayne Manor, he'd be able to get a position there where he could actually live there and make sure the cave entrance stays hidden. Bruce choosing Blake to be his successor is not random.

Exactly right, the bolded especially. Thinking even further into the future, the boys home may well provide him with a Robin/Batman III of his own someday.
