Senior Moments | Episode 13: Cherished Companions

This week’s special guest for our first “in office” podcast recording is Douglas Wilbur, owner of Cherished Companions, a locally owned and operated home care agency that puts care first in all it’s decision making. “Nine out of ten people prefer to be at home” when they are aging, says Wilbur. Their group works hard to provide affordable care, with creative billing and staffing options that makes in-home care accessible to more people in the eastern regions of Cleveland. Their care model and business philosophy is based on the “Seek first to understand and then to be understood,” where listening and quality care are the first priority.

Senior Moments | Episode 10: Keith Smith, a financial quarterback

Brad and Heather talk money and planning with Morgan Stanley adviser, Keith Smith. From college to retirement, there are many overlaps between the kind of support we provide families. Attorneys and financial advisers often work together to provide a full circle of support, and Keith considers himself a “financial quarterback” who helps ensure that your finances are one less thing to worry about during transitions and stressful phases of family life.

Senior Moments | Episode 5: The sandwich generation

On their latest Senior Moments podcast, special guest Howard Schreiber talks with Brad and Heather about the support they provided during his mother’s illness. With sisters living out of town, caregiving and financial decision making fell almost exclusively on Howard’s shoulders, and he also had a family of his own to provide for. With the support of a Care Coordinator, his mom was able to stay in her home for longer than expected through the use of the Passport home care program.
Our team worked closely with the family’s financial planner, to ensure that Mom and Dad could maintain their quality of life and standard of living throughout her long illness. “Heather was so good to my mother, she treated Mom better than [family].”
