Desk Mate Service
Desk Mate service provides personal assistance with basic financial and household tasks.
Why Might a Desk Mate be Needed?
Information from a 2009 Harvard University study found that a startling number of older adults either lack the cognitive abilities to manage their finances or delegate that responsibility to others.
In the research paper, “The Age of Reason: Financial Decisions over the Life-Cycle with Implications for Regulation,” David Laibson, a professor at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., and noted expert in behavioral economics, found the prevalence of dementia among Americans “explodes” after age 60, doubling every five years to more than 30% of the population over age 85.
Even without diagnosed dementia, many older adults still experience “substantial cognitive impairment.”
As a result, nearly half of the population between 80 and 89 is impaired by dementia or has cognitive impairment.
If you or your loved one feels that help is needed, our Desk Mate can step in to manage the financial affairs and keep scammers away, and protect the monetary resources of the senior.
