As we age, most of us will need some help.  Whether it's Meals on Wheels, Skilled Nursing, or just companionship in an Independent Living facility where we can pay for more help as we need it. Planning ahead will ensure that we have the best care we can afford. To help with your research as you approach this important planning, I've listed some of my favorite resources here.  If you do a search you will find many, many more sources of information.  I found much of it to be overwhelming, thus I created the lists in my book.  I'm sure you'll want to add to those lists, so email me with your suggestions.
