    What is a reverse mortgage and is it a safe option?
     
    • I actually do know what this means. A reverse mortgage is a form of equity release (or lifetime mortgage) available in the United States. It is a loan available to seniors aged 62 or older, per HUD, and is used to release the home equity in the property as one lump sum or multiple payments. The homeowner's obligation to repay the loan is deferred until the owner dies, the home is sold, or the owner leaves. The owner can be out of the home for up to 364 consecutive days.

    • This is a difficult and tiresome decision to make and should be done with your parents who will eventually have to put up with that person. You might want to start off with friends who know caregivers and can recommend to you. Also there's a website for this: http://www.caregiver.com/

    I am a senior who needs elderly assisted living. Where should I go if i want the most caring service, no matter what cost?
     
    • Go see some places and see if you think you would enjoy living in the atmosphere with the people that are already there. You can start by looking at www.assistedliving.com to help you make a more informed decision.
