Oasis Hollinger resized 186x225This photo is of my father, Bob Hollinger Sr.. who served three years in the United States Marine Corps in Italy in 1945. He’s 87 now, and I spend a lot of time with him. It’s been six years since my mother passed, and I have been so proud of him, living independently and taking great care of himself. But recently I have been worried about him, because he’s falling, and though he can remember so many details about his life 70 years ago, he can’t remember who was in a movie he watched 20 minutes ago. He’s giving money he doesn’t have to mail and phone scams, is now vulnerable and too trusting, and he doesn’t know how $500 is disappearing from his bank account every month. He needs help.

And I can and will help, because I am Bob Hollinger Jr., Certified Senior Advisor, helping seniors and their families in the Lehigh Valley.
Do you have a senior loved one who is forgetting food cooking on the stove? Are they forgetting when or if they took their prescription medications, then taking double doses? Are they forgetting to pay their bills on time when before they never never paid late? Is their balance an issue and are they falling? Are they making excuses and covering up things, or are they checking things incessantly. Do you worry that they are safe living alone? Are you concerned about their driving, especially at night, or have they had an accident recently? Are you worried about receiving a phone call from the hospital emergency room that there has been an accident. Are your shoulders tense and full of stress, worried sick about your senior loved one? Perhaps you need to speak to a Certified Senior Advisor. And the BEST part about speaking with someone like Bob Hollinger, CSA, is that it’s always FREE. He would be happy to explain ALL your senior options here in the Lehigh Valley.
 
A CSA can take that stress and worry away with educated solutions to your senior concerns. I received that dreaded phone call from the local police the night of the 32 inch snow storm. Fortunately my father was OK and still alive when they found him, but he ventured outside in three feet of snow - to check his car battery!

The next step is to visit the VA for a dementia evaluation. We hope he will start using his walker. And he needs three healthy meals a day at a place with activities to keep him busy. So I will be moving him soon to a safer place, where I won’t have to worry about him falling and being found two days later.

There is help for you if you have questions that need answers. And it is only a phone call or an email away. Call today to set up a free consultation. Tel(610)704-4090 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
