Spend time with your loved one doing what really matters.

Is your loved one’s daily money management too much to handle alone?

If you have a loved one who is aging or limited by illness, you may be asking:

Are all their bills being paid on time?

Are they susceptible to fraud or identity theft?

Are their “affairs in order”?

And day by day, the worries creep in…
I am so unprepared for the inevitable…
I don’t have time to deal with all this paperwork.
I don’t even know where to begin.

You feel overwhelmed and are losing precious time with your loved one while you try to manage their money all by yourself.

But it does not have to be this way.

Life with your loved one could be SO much better…

You could get back your time with them.
You could spend less time shuffling paper and more time connecting with each other.
You could take control of the piles of documents and have a structure in place to manage them.
You could finally feel prepared for whatever comes.

Start with a State of Current Affairs Review.

The State of Current Affairs Review is a 30-minute call where we cut through the confusion and create a roadmap for clarity in your loved one’s estate.
During our call, we will:
Review your loved one’s estate documents
Assess how their bills are currently handled
