While the golden years provide an opportunity for personal fulfillment and enjoyment, they can also bring a great deal of stress. Managing finances, creating a safe living environment, legal issues such as advance directives, financial planning, and navigating each of life’s transitions can be overwhelming for clients and their families. Making it even more difficult is that families are increasingly separated by distance. ElderNav maps out a plan that ensures that clients and their families can both enjoy these years and lessen the strain that comes with these major life decisions. Even with the changing life circumstances that come with aging, with some assistance and accommodations designed by ElderNav, clients can continue to enjoy the full and happy life they are used to living. And, families can rest easy knowing that they and their family member have ElderNav as a resource and as an adviser if any other issues arise.
