Being responsible for dependents who live with you – whether that includes children, parents or possibly both – can prove to be a challenging dynamic. But even looking out for a family member in a retirement home or other special needs facility can also be time consuming. Regardless of your responsibilities to others, however, it’s important to ensure your personal finances never take a backseat. It’s our pleasure to review your budget and expenses to see if you could benefit from accessing some of your home equity to ease cashflow or even finance your retirement. It’s important to always remember that your future needs shouldn’t suffer while you’re taking care of others.
