Linda came into our office literally in tears. She was faced with taking care of her aging father who had the early stages of Alzheimer's. Everything changed - her father moved into her home, she had to quit her job, and life started to revolve around his care. Linda began to lose her feeling of identity and was frazzled by all of the loose ends. We were able to help her get a handle on the financial picture, get organized, and connect her with resources to help lighten the load.
