Technology solutions for aging adults

As the population ages, friends and family members are determined to help older adults age in place. Missy Escribano, a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, has provided the following technology solutions for aging adults.

Cash, dethroned

There used to be a time when cash ruled the roost. When a healthy wallet was packed with a selection of bills: some ones and fives and a few twenties, and if things were really going well a nice crisp $100.

Rethink the ink

From an infinity symbol to Harry Potter Deathly Hallows, tattoos can reveal a person’s interests, history and personality. Why do tattoos appeal to Millennials so much more than previous generations?

Projecting a happy retirement

Your own savings may be more substantial, but in general Americans struggle to meet their savings goals. Even a healthy savings account may not provide as much income as you would like over a long retirement.

How will I manage to send my child to college?

Being able to send your child to college is near the top of the wish list for most parents. A college education can open doors to many opportunities, and is increasingly necessary in today's economy. But that diploma doesn't come cheap.

Should I pay off my student loans early or contribute to my workplace 401(k)?

For young adults with college debt, deciding whether to pay off student loans early or contribute to a 401(k) can be tough. It's a financial tug-of-war between digging out from debt today and saving for the future.

Planning for marriage encompasses more than just deciding whether to serve chicken at the reception and whether you should take a honeymoon cruise.

Wealth due to inheritance

If you're the beneficiary of a large inheritance, you may find yourself suddenly wealthy. Even if you expected the inheritance, you may be surprised by the size of the bequest or the diverse assets you've inherited. You'll need to evaluate your new financial position, learn to manage your sizable assets, and consider the tax consequences of your inheritance, among other issues.
