Encouraging Your Aging Loved One to Move into Assisted Living

Telling a senior family member about moving to a senior care center, such as a well-regarded assisted living community or an independent living with memory care facility, is one of the most difficult things to do. Whether you are faced with this choice for the first time or have had this conversation before; the experience will always be different for different people—some may find it rewarding and for some it can be scary. As family caregivers we need to make sure that we are in the listening mode because many times we just want to solve the problem and never think about how the person feels about the situation or what they may be thinking in that moment when they are facing a transition to a new living arrangement that will impact all aspects of their life, not just physical but also emotional and social as well!…

Never take out more in student loans than you absolutely need.

Five Coloradans share stories about the student debt crisis - Chalkbeat  Colorado

Make Sure You Never Default

The U.S. Department of Education makes it easy for you to avoid defaulting with student loans. Simply contact your local school district and ask to talk to an Education Department loan officer. There are no fees or additional costs to talk to your loan officer. Once you’ve told them you’ve had enough, the loan officer will find out your eligibility for “fault discharge.” This means the loan can be discharged if you fail to make payments for more than 60 days. If the loan is in default, you will not be eligible for fault discharge.…
