Life’s Encore Planning serves people who are struggling to care for and support their aging loved ones.
Are you worried and in the dark when it comes to your aging loved ones Estate, Finances, and if they are safe in their home?
Do they have all the legal documentation in place for someone to support them when they are unable to?
Are they financially secure for future health costs and care needs?
What plans are in place to keep them safe and secure in their home NOW, and not once something has happened.
The best way to start this journey with your loved one is to have THE Conversation. Initiating THE Conversation
is usually difficult. If it wasn’t you would have done it already. We can facilitate “THE Conversation”
between you, your loved one and other concerned individuals to get your questions answered.
Here is our Free Guide to help you with questions to ask your aging loved one.
Are you worried about your loved ones financial and medical needs as they get older?
We have covered the importance of having THE Conversation with your loved one and those who are their support system as the first step.
The next step is Estate Planning, which is the best way for all of us to ensure as we age our financial and medical needs are taken care of.
If your loved one has done their estate planning, give them a “Hell Yes”.
If not or they haven’t made updates lately, this is the next step.
What People Say About Us
Elizabeth it was a pleasure working with you and coordinating all of the things necessary to sell Bill's house. You made my job more focused on marketing and negotiating the sale while you handled his personal needs of clearing out the house and moving his belongings. (Something that I most often must do as a service to my clients.)
I have known Elizabeth for more than 20 years. I met her through her first business taking care of my cats and then I was able to use her services through Life’s Encore Planning. Elizabeth is very nurturing, caring person, and she takes good care of her clients.
Nothing hits you harder than the storm of an aging parent. What's even worse is most don't know what to do in this storm. The bad advice from friends makes it even worse. So many will tell you what to do and have no knowledge. Therefore, I'm so happy Elizabeth was there for me with her expertise. Her guidance helps with your emotions, the financial and the wellbeing for your parent. I would highly recommend Elizabeth for making this important decision for the one you love.
“You can be totally trusted, and will do the best you can with a wealth of talents that go beyond expectations.”
