“I don’t want my daughter’s husband to inherit anything of mine!!” 🚫
.
Yep, it’s something we hear. And it’s a valid concern.
.
If your kid married someone that you’d rather not share your belongings with, what can you do
to avoid it?
.
👉 Set up a living trust for your adult child.
. In a living trust, you can be as specific as you like.
.
And in this case, your daughter’s inheritance will be protected from all others who might try to get a slice, including her spouse.
.
If you have questions about this, send us a message.

Are you responsible for taking care of your elderly parents? 👨‍🦳👵
.
And maybe you feel like...you aren’t the right person for this?
.
Some people aren’t meant to be caregivers, and THAT IS OKAY!
.
.. If caregiving is…
.
😓 Stressing you out to the point of it affecting your mental health
.
😓 Compromising other areas in your life in a big way
.
😓 NOT your personality match
.
.
Then maybe it’s time to think about other ways to care for them besides caregiving.
.
One of the best ways to offer your care and love without being their caregiver?
.
👉 Help them find the best option of caregiving where they will be taken care of most.
.
And remember, it’s okay.
.
Not everyone is meant to be a caregiver, and you can still love and care for your aging parents.

Have a loved one who has Alzheimer’s?
.
Then you probably know all too well that there are BIG changes in personality.
.
And unfortunately, we cannot stop those changes.
.
However, there are ways we can cope.
.
According to the National Institute of Aging , this is what you can do:
.
▪ Keep it simple, say one thing at a time
.
▪ Set a daily routine so they know what to expect
.
▪ Reassure them that they are safe and that you are there to help
.
▪ Don’t argue or try to reason with them
.
▪ Try not to show your anger
.
▪ If they pace a lot, give them comfy shoes and a snack to eat
.
▪ Distract them by using music, dancing, or singing
.
▪ Ask for their help, “I need help washing the dishes”
.
And just remember: breathe.
.
Caregiving is one of the toughest jobs anyone can do.

“Can I get paid to be a caregiver for my parents?” 💰
.
Short answer:
.
Yes!
.
Especially if the one you are caring for is a veteran 🇸, or gets Medicaid.
.
It all depends on which state you live in and which program your loved one qualifies for.
.
The best thing that you can do RIGHT NOW is to do a little research online (or you can send us a message and we can talk with you about it).
.
There is too much information to cover in this one post about getting paid to be a caregiver, but we just want our readers to know that YES, it is possible.
.
If you have any questions, shoot us a message and let's chat.

Your loved one just passed away.
.
What is the first thing you should do❓❓
.
(Besides the immediate need of their funeral and handling their finances.)

Here’s what you can do to make that happen:
.
▪ Set the house alarm
.

.
▪ Stop newspaper delivery (and any other subscription that will make it obvious that nobody lives there anymore)
.
▪ Forward their mail to your address
.
▪ Remove all cash, credit cards, checkbooks
.
Wondering how to prepare for a loss?

“My mom is in her late 80s and I think it’s time for her to stay with me.”
.
Whoa, hold on a minute!
.
Before you have your aging parent move in, consider this:
.
❓ Is your house ready for a walker or a wheelchair?
.
❓ Are your doors wide enough for a wheelchair?
.
❓ How will they be able to take a shower at your house?
.
Think ahead and be prepared to make these changes in order to make your home practical for them.

We know the movie, The Godfather, was all about the mafia.
.
But did you notice that the word “mafia” is not mentioned ONCE in the movie? 😮
.
There’s a good reason for that.
.
👉 According to Al Ruddy, the producer, when the movie was first being made, the REAL mafia found out and tried to put a stop to it.
.
Apparently, the mafia didn’t want the movie to give them a bad rep.
.
Ultimately the producers and the mob were able to come to a compromise: the show could go on as long as the word “mafia” wasn’t mentioned.
.
Crazy, huh?
