Caring for those who once cared for us
It’s not easy to decide what to do when an aging parent or relative ceases to have the desire or ability to continue managing their finances. This situation can carry a substantial burden for the people taking over, as it’s one thing to be responsible for your own financial future, but quite another thing when you assume control for someone else. In many instances, people taking over this role do not have the experience, expertise or time needed to effectively manage the investment and financial decisions for their aging parent or relative.
