Elder Care Planning
A large percentage of our population is now over the age of 65, and living well into their 90’s. As they age, the “baby boom” and “swing” generations state their primary goals are to maintain their independence and not to be a burden on their loved ones. Additionally, these aging adults are interested in options of to ridding themselves of the hassles of home ownership while not losing all the equity they built up over the years. Unfortunately their goals are threatened by the fears like cognitive impairment, the possibility of needing long term care, and finding a planner who truly understands their current stage of life.
At Horizon Ridge Wealth Management, our team has caringly guided hundreds of individuals and families in evaluating and implementing aging options like:
- Independent Living
- Home Care
- Assisted Living or Memory Care

- Reviewing of different living arrangements that fit within their financial constraints
- How to manage drawdowns and maintain a balanced budget over time
- Working with an elder care attorney to construct an appropriate end of life estate plan
