Sell a House

N

Buy a House

Work with an expert who understands the current needs and anticipates the future needs of a senior (or soon to be a senior!) buying a house.

N

Empty a House

Removing years of accumulated belongings from a home prior to sale is daunting for anyone.  Move managers know how to declutter, repurpose and work with seniors reluctant to let go of unused items.

N

Estate Sales

An estate sale delivers the dual benefit of removing unneeded items from the home and turning them into cash. 

N

Senior Community Selection

Locating the right senior community is challenging.  Work with an expert who knows all the communities and can help pick the right one.

HEALTH

N

Hearing Aids

Hearing loss is more than inconvenient; it can result in isolation and diminished intellectual capability.  A hearing test is the first step to improved communication.

N

Home Health Providers

Attentive home health providers (medical and non-medical) can help seniors age in place safely.

N

Case Management

A case manager acts like a general contractor for a senior’s overall care, organizing and supervising the various providers needed for complex care or when there are no local family members.

N

Dental

Good dental health is critical for a senior’s overall health.

N

Podiatry

Podiatric care can enhance and improve a senior’s mobility.

N

Hospice

Hospice providers can make the end of life fulfilling and even joyous while making sure the patient is as comfortable as possible.

 

N

Supplemental Medicare Plans

Between annual changes and a multitude of choices, navigating Medicare requires the help of an expert who knows how to match the senior with the best supplemental plan.

 

Get the help you need.

FINANCIAL

N

Long-Term Care Insurance

The high cost of living in a senior community can be offset or eliminated with long-term care insurance, which will also protect family assets and permit a spouse’s lifestyle to continue without compromise.

N

Final Expense Insurance

Funerals can be expensive and several insurance carriers offer lower cost policies that will cover final expenses, eliminating the family’s worry about where that large expenditure will come from.

N

Retirement Planning & Budgeting

The time to plan for retirement should begin when someone is in their 20’s.  Starting to plan in one’s 60’s is late but can still be successful, depending upon the asset base.  Professional guidance is critical to making sure one’s money lasts through retirement.

N

Reverse Mortgage

For some seniors, their home is almost their sole asset.  A reverse mortgage can unlock the equity in the home and create a happier, lower stress retirement.

N

Credit Counseling

It’s never too late to remedy decisions one made earlier in life.  Improving one’s credit score can open purchasing opportunities, even later in life.

Get the relief you’re looking for.

TRANSPORTATION

N

Medical Transportation

A number of options exist to transport seniors with medical conditions that require special vehicles.  Vehicles that transport people in wheelchairs can be rented on a daily basis or for extended periods.

N

Need a Ride

There are low-cost ways for seniors to be safely and reliably transported when they don’t drive and friends and family aren’t available.

N

Sell a Car

Turning a car into cash while maximizing the return and minimizing stress and effort is possible.

Make your next trip easy.
