Senior Resources

Elder care planning may be your mental, physical, or career life line. A MetLife Mature Market Institute study over ten years ago published results stating substantial caregiver respondent wealth losses in social security, pension benefits, and wages exceeded $600,000, on average.  For a person turning 65 this year, this equates to over $2,000 lost income per month in retirement. Ten years later, information and elder care services have improved significantly providing the ability to offset financial losses through planning.  Click on the links below for valuable information.
