"That was the biggest relief, being able to say 'Call my lawyer..You cannot call me legally anymore. It gave me the freedom to feel like I can move forward."
The constant harassment and...the nasty people that are on the other end of that phone are eliminated completely. No more stress. I can't press that enough...it's all taken care of.
In the respect that you don't have to pay those bills, you can take that money and get the medicines that you need and stay healthier...have heat...and stay in your house. It really does have a tremendous benefit.
We understand it is hard to watch the parent or family member you love face hard times. Sometimes these issues seem to arrive without any previous warning and other times it is just too much to face painful signs of a senior's decline. Nobody likes to see someone they love suffer, especially a dear family member. Many times seniors try to hide their suffering from loved ones, trying to protect them from the realities of their financial situation.
One of the biggest mistakes a family can make is choosing to deny a financial crisis. Things put off for too long typically tumble down when there is an unplanned medical event and all of the frustrating problems become much tougher to solve. Unpleasant discussions about insurance policies or credit card bills are made much worse when done under the pressure of ill health or decline.
