“Navigating the Eldercare Journey…Without Going Broke!” by Jodi Clock is a must read for estate planners, attorneys, families, or anyone who is concerned about preserving wealth for future generations. Her twenty-plus years in funeral pre-planning, as well as her firsthand experience from serving families in the funeral home, provide Clock with the insights that make this both a common sense guide for consumers and a pragmatic road map for practitioners to arrive at a safe financial destination.” Tony Colson
“Whether you’re taking care of elders or just hoping to take care of yourself, you need to know this stuff. Jodi Clock takes a complex emotional and financial minefield and makes it so much simpler to navigate. There’s just no excuse for not being better informed – not when the information is all right here where you need it.” Paul J Seyler Competitive Resources, Inc.
“I have known Jodi for a number of years and have admired Jodi’s energy and enthusiasm for her work during all of those years. She has a passion for funeral service and a sincere desire to help those in need. I have read her new book, “Navigating the Eldercare Journey” and found it informative and necessary reading for those of us in our 50s now beginning to seriously take care of our parents. I wish my parents could have read it when they were in their 50s. From a funeral profession perspective, I find that this book could provide a source of entry for expanding a funeral home or cemetery’s service offer into new markets beyond their current one. To grow the funeral business, the potential customer has to have a good reason to move their business from one provider to another. Associating with this book, and its related mindset of serving people who legitimately need help, can go a long way toward attracting new business. Jodi has again provided one more reason to be viewed as a positive force for funeral service and related service industries.” Doug Gober, CPA
“Your guidance throughout the past months was a sensational blessing to my family and most importantly my mother; from her care, wishes and final resting place. There are many events that are a part of our journey in life, some joyous, sad, expected or unexpected. My mom always said she did not want to be a burden in her later years. She met with her attorney 20 years ago, preplanned her funeral, executed a Living Trust and a DNR and had it all packaged in a “special envelope.” When she was diagnosed with early Dementia we were heart broken and unaware what lied ahead. We quickly realized we needed to find a quality place for her to live and properly care for her, review her health coverage and finances. Not knowing her time left with us, it was difficult to make decisions without emotion. Your book gave us guidance and comfort when interviewing the assisted living residence, trying to understand the Medicare and Medicare programs, and making sure we had the appropriate documents to properly manage her finances and most importantly, her wishes. As we opened the “special envelope,” we realized we did not have all the documents we needed, including the Financial POA and the Medical POA. We found a wonderful place for her to live as she quickly progressed through the stages of Alzheimer’s in a matter of months. We are at peace knowing she was in the best place of care, her finances were accessible for her needs, her medical coverage was complete which gave her the best possible health care and her wishes were complete as she was laid to rest where she belonged in her beloved Michigan. Jodi’s guidance and experience gave my mom what she deserved – the very best, just as she was…” Lori Palmer, Client
“I didn’t even know there were elder care attorneys before reading this book. Within months I was consulting one myself on behalf of my own father. “Navigating the Eldercare Journey” is an indispensable guidebook for this complex and emotionally charged journey we Boomers must make with our parents. Jodi Clock skillfully weaves together a life story that helps explain the many challenges we face with medical, financial and other elder life planning issues. Issues most of us should confront sooner, rather than later. “Having worked closely with funeral service professionals for years, I’m convinced that Jodi Clock’s book belongs in the resource center of every funeral home in America. Her narrative walks the reader through a story so many of us face firsthand in our own families. As we confront the myriad of issues and emotions caring for aging parents it’s important to understand that your hometown funeral director can be an invaluable resource in reducing stress – helping solve many of these challenges of elder care.” Mark Jorgensen
