By 2050 it is estimated that 32 million Americans will be living with some form of dementia. That puts tremendous pressure on us living in the Lehigh Valley community to help improve the lives of people living with diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Early Onset Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, etc. Surely there are opportunities for people to move to memory care accommodations in the Lehigh Valley, but that is not the solution for the large majority of people living with these diseases. Family members want to provide care ‘at home’ for their loved one who is living with the disease, and long term care in a quality memory support care facility may not be financially feasible.

The Inspector General of Social Security, Gail S. Ennis, is warning the public that telephone scammers may send faked documents by email to convince victims to comply with their demands. The Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has received reports of victims who received emails with attached letters and reports that appeared to be from Social Security or Social Security OIG. The letters may use official letterhead and government “jargon” to convince victims they are legitimate; they may also contain misspellings and grammar mistakes.
Spring is here — a season for change. Hibernating animals (and people!) wake up and move around; ferns begin to uncurl; acorns begin their transition to mighty oaks; birds build their nests; and many homeowners begin the search for their new nest. Unless you’re a hermit crab, moving from one house to another is not cheap — moving can entail expenses that are greater and more varied than you might expect. What are some money matters to consider when you consider buying a house?
