About Us

Our lives were turned upside down in 2014 when my mother had a health crisis and her and my dad came to live with us while she received care in California.  What was supposed to be 2 or 3 months ended up being 13 months.  By 2016 my mom was now unable to go back to living in their condo in Washington state.  With my dad being my mom's caregiver, it was left up to me to figure out a new normal for their finances, living situation, and care for my mom.  This was an overwhelming task for me to take on as I had my own very full life.  The added responsibility took away valuable time and energy I would have given to Steve and Aiden.


I'm the husband and the web person and I am the support for Life's Encore Planning not the brains but the Braun.
