Aid for Baby Boomers and Their Children

What documents are needed NOW!!

When my wife’s parent became ill and needed more care than we could give them we needed several documents immediately.  The most important was a Power of Attorney since we needed to start making decision for them.  The sooner you have this document the better.  If the person is not mentally capable of giving you their Power of Attorney them it may be too late.  A Will, an Advance Health Care Directive and a Trust are the other “most” important documents to have in your possession as soon as possible!  Below is a short and beginning list of the most important documents needed but not all.  Another post coming soon will list others.  Study these and make sure you understand them.

The Most Important Documents for Boomers and their Children!

Will (especially if you have under age children)

Advance Directive or Advance Health Care Directive

Senior Citizens Need Help – July 20, 2019

Senior Citizens Need Help

Even though we started getting mail when we turned forty from organizations telling us we were now seniors, my wife and I did not know how much we needed help as Senior Citizens until we were in our fifties. We didn’t even know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid!

Tipping Point

The tipping point was when my wife’s parents needed our help to live at home. Her father started have mini-seizures and before long he could not take care of himself at home even with his wife’s and our help. After many trips to the hospital and stays in rehabilitation centers, he became confined to a long term care health center for his care.

Medicare vs. Medicaid?

At that point, we did not even know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. We soon learned that to pay the super expensive care of a long term care facility, we had to get him on Medicaid.

The High Cost of Long Term Care

Soon after, his wife, my wife’s mother, was diagnosed with Alzheimer and had to be admitted into a special long term care facility in another town for her care. The cost of these two facilities was over 10,000 dollars per month! They could not afford that and we were forced to learn all about Medicaid and how it is different from Medicare.

If you are in your fifties, this will be valuable information for both you and your parents! Medicare/Medicaid

2019 My first month review of Wealthy Affiliate

”Wow” was my first impression of Wealthy Affiliate (WA)!!

Ten thousand Boomers are reaching 65 years of age every day in the U.S.A.!  Many without enough money to last their retirement years!

I don’t know any business you can try out for a week for free and get so much training.  I was so impressed that I went ahead and subscribed for a full year.

What is so great about WA??  First they will encourage you to find your passion niche and begin to research and blog about it! Then they will train you step by step to;

  •  Use tools to help you build a website and draw traffic (people) to your web site.

  • The ability to start making money quickly by promoting Wealthy Affiliate to others.

  • The “huge” community of fellow affiliate marketers willing to help and share!

  • Working at your own pace, no boss looking over your shoulder!

In the first month, I have already started my own private domain web site  www.boomersaide.com  and populate it with blogs.  It’s been a total blast with WA’s step by step instructions!!

I am retired and my wife and I have a good income from our teacher’s pension so my progress has been relative slow and intermittent.

My motivation is more to help my family members, other retirees and nonprofits I support!

You, however, may be able to spend much more time (I’m averaging about 3 hours or less a day) and be way ahead of me at the end of one month.
