Recent surveys show, people would rather talk to their kids about sex, then their parents about money. But proper eldercare planning includes more than just the physical, emotional and social aspects of life. Like it or not, sooner or later, we’re going to have to talk money.
This week on Parents Are Hard To Raise…Diane’s special guest, Eldercare Financial Expert, Colin Meeks, helps us navigate the choppy waters of our parents money matters.
Colin Meeks is a certified financial planner who specializes in elder care finance. His Maryland based practice, Maryland Financial Advocates helps families that are caring for an aging parent as well as those who are raising a child with special needs to plan for and protect their financial futures. He serves on the boards of Autism Society Baltimore-Chesapeake, First Maryland Disability Trust, a nonprofit organization serving individuals with disabilities of all ages throughout Maryland, and The Kennedy Krieger Institute.
