Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging
Providing Compassionate Care and Trust Administration to Seniors

Senior Situation:

I am worried about my family’s ability to handle my finances for me when I get older and if have health problems. They are so busy with their own lives. They don’t live nearby and I want to stay in my home as long as I can.


Senior Solution from Jeff Patton:

Naming the Foundation as your professional fiduciary will give you the independence you want while ensuring that your finances will be managed correctly, without putting the burden on family members. The Foundation can serve as your Agent under Power of Attorney, Successor Trustee, and Executor under your Will.

If you sign up for their Durable Program, you can get to know the office staff now, while you are healthy, and they will review your documents with you. In this way, you can share your wishes so they will be honored when the time comes.


If you want to live at home as you age, if you become incapacitated, they can hire in-home care for you. Their compassionate care managers will then monitor your health to make sure your needs are met during periods of disability. Working with the Foundation gives you the confidence of knowing that if you become sick, they will be able to seamlessly handle your bills and money management.
