Today's average senior citizen will start retirement with approximately seven people in their family who could possibly help them. By 2050, when Baby Boomers begin hitting their eighties, that ratio is expected to drop to an average of fewer than three potential caregivers per senior citizen. In fact, many Baby Boomers will have no one at all who will be able to help them. People in this situation are known as Elder Orphans. #retirement #aging #ageinplace #retire

The Ombudsman Program is based on the concept that even the very elderly have the right to privacy, confidentiality, self-determination, dignity and respect. They have the right to have someone listen to their concerns and make sure their wishes are carried out. They also have the right to know that someone will take their complaints seriously and investigate accusations of abuse, neglect or theft. Learn more about how an ombudsman can help you or someone you care about. #nursinghomes #longtermcare #ombudsmen #elderabuse

Should you retire with a mortgage? Many people do, although it is not the right decision for everyone. According to a 2013 survey done by the Federal Reserve, in 2001 approximately 74 percent of homeowners had managed to pay off their mortgages prior to retirement. By 2013, that number had dropped to only 61 percent. #mortgages #loans #debts #retirement
