The Financial Management Challenge: We Help You Make Sure the Lights Stay on and the Bills Get Paid

by | Feb 18, 2014 | Our Blog

Research demonstrates that the elderly want to stay in their homes as long as possible. Yet the older a loved one gets, the more difficult independence becomes. We believe companion care can help. Over the coming weeks we will discuss how companion caregivers can help overcome 10 major challenges faced by the elderly and by their families and loved ones. Please contact us at 888-791-8449 or Stay at Home if you have questions or would like more information.


Growing old doesn’t mean your bills go away. The electric company, the telephone company, the garbage collector, they all want to get paid, even when we have a hard time balancing the checkbook and remembering to pay the bills.

Missed payments and overdrawn checking accounts are often the first indication people get that their elderly loved ones need help. At Stay at Home, we’re not volunteering to take over your parent’s finances; that’s a job best left to a family member. But we can help ensure that you’re on top of the situation.

That’s just one reason why caregivers are given a thorough background check before they come to work for us. That way, you can trust anyone from Stay at Home.

In that case, then, we can be a member of your financial team and tell you when the power company or the telephone company calls, asking about a late payment.

In other words, we’re there to catch the red flags.
