Who Needs The Help of a Daily Money Manager?

an image

People whose busy careers do not leave them enough time for their own paperwork, individuals with medical issues that keep them from staying on top of their finances, senior citizens, and people with disabilities all decide to hire a daily money manager (DMM).


Some members of the Checks and Balances senior client base are simply too active in their retirement to bother with the mundane details of their accounts; they prefer to enjoy their travels or social engagements and leave the details to someone else. Others have a hard time keeping up with their paperwork due to challenges brought on by the aging process.


When aging begins to affect a family, the responsibility of money management frequently falls to adult children of older parents. They sometimes find that the amount of time, energy, and ability needed to manage their parents’ accounts requires more than they can give. In these circumstances, people seek out the assistance of a DMM.


Patty has dealt with the intricacies of assisting parents through big life changes: downsizing to a smaller house, moving into assisted living, and transferring to a dementia unit. She understands the practical and emotional challenges involved in these situations.


With the compassion to support a family through these transitions and the skill to do it well, the Checks and Balances staff can help you manage all of the complexities involved with personal finance.
