NEW!!! Senior Retirement/Care Housing Guidance - A Place for Mom

Who do you call when a loved one can't live on their own any longer or have had a serious health event and you need help finding the right housing and care services for your parent or parents?

I called A Place for Mom and was happy I did.  Their local elder care advisors help families find the right solutions for their family member's unique care and housing needs.  Click hereto learn more about how 'A Place for Mom' can help you like they did with my family.

Are you prepared if you were to lose a loved one? Most of us will agree that it's time well spent in planning for important life moments like college for our kids, saving for a home or retirement.  But, have you spent time in planning to make sure your family would be adequately prepared to handle your affairs when you die? 

Lynn Lambrecht's 'The Living' is a great place to start! She believes, as I do, that it is truly a gift to our loved ones when we are organized and document our wishes and personal, financial and legal information in a clear and organized way. 

Lynn provides "Get Started Now" one-on-one packages and also provides workshops for organizations.  For additional information contact her via email:
