- Name: Sue Emerson | E-mail: [email protected] | IP: 184.108.40.206Got another idea: how about a segment on making the home safer for seniors? My folks want to stay in their home as long as possible but there are things we, as caregivers and children, need to do to make it safer for them to stay there by themselves. Help!

- Name: Sue Emerson | E-mail: [email protected] | IP: 220.127.116.11Could you also do segments on Working at home, home businesses, etc. for seniors? Another idea is particularly for disabled seniors, not able to work other places. The seniors are scammed in this area of the work force; and it would be great for them to KNOW where to go to find work at home jobs, start a homebusiness honestly without paying out a lot of money. Yes, there are tons of stuff on the internet, but they dont have the time, resources or understanding to locate them.

- Name: Sue Emerson | E-mail: [email protected] | IP: 18.104.22.168Fantastic idea!!!! It seems in our society the seniors are pretty much “forgotten” except to grab more of their money.
Be sure to focus on problems seniors have with finding jobs, health, disabilities and jobs, and definitely on seniors with very little income and how to survive. There are more of those out there, but everyone seems to focus on the ones with decent resources(money) and good health. That’s only a small percentage of seniors.
Also, I live in an area that is large majority of seniors, a touristy area, that is now becoming a “condo-coastal” are for wealthier retirees. Could you focus on tying in to our cable network (TimeWarner) and do some segments here? I would be glad to help in any way with any information.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!!

- Name: lois fishman | E-mail: [email protected] | URI: http://www.fishmanfinancial.com | IP: 188.8.131.52Kudos to you for writing about these issues. In my practice I see many issues that the caregivers have. One significant one is stress not only from the emotional side of having one’s loved one ill or dying but from feeling overwhelmed by stepping into their shoes to take care of their finances. Often they want to do like the ill person had done but are totally unprepared. Often they themselves are not good at handling money. For some, there is the development of guilt as they dip into these newly available funds for their own needs. This is a phenomenon that I have witnessed with some of my adult children who care for aging parents. In a couple situation, the well spouse is rarely the one who has always handled the funds. It is more likely that the ill spouse was the “money” person leaving the other spouse to fend on their own.
I would love the opportunity to discuss these issues with you….
