Helping you care for the seniors you love

Liisa Ogburn

Only 25 percent of people older than 65 believe they will need any help in their later years, yet 70 percent do. The average senior needs some amount of help for the last eight years of life.

This need often falls to family. 65 million people in the United States provide an average of 20 hours of care per week for an aging loved one.

My name is Liisa Ogburn (yes, that spelling is correct. I’m half Finnish) and my firm, Aging Advisors NC, focuses on helping individuals and their families plan for or respond to the needs that arise during the last years of life. Call or text me for a free 15-minute consult: 1-919-827-7700.

As a twice-a-week columnist for WRAL on elder issues called Aging Well, I understand the resources available, as well as key points to consider before selecting the right community for your parent. I can help you by clearly explaining options and concepts such as longterm care coverage, Medicare, Medicaid, home help, adult day care, free senior resources, palliative or hospice care, assistive technology, etc. I’m familiar with the many companies working in this space and how to discern the most ethical ones. We can speak by phone or I can come to your home. I am independent. I take no referral fees. I am happy to provide references.
