Thanks to everyone at Nerd Wallet for their interest in my work and spreading the important news every healthcare consumer should know in today’s climate of spiraling medical costs.
If you suddenly received a serious health diagnosis, how prepared are you and your loved ones to cope with the challenge? Are all matters concerning your Last Will and Testament and other legal documents in order? How can you be certain the medical opinion you receive is accurate? Do you know where to search for a second one? While you may not be wealthy, do you understand what the future financial cost to your beneficiaries will be in the event your home is not held in a living trust? What will your health insurance cover? How can you successfully appeal an insurance denial for reasonable coverage? Who will protect you if you’re told it’s time to be discharged from the hospital but it really isn’t?

A Sherpa is a Tibetan person adept in mountain climbing and is acclimated to high altitudes. Often secured as a guide by other less experienced mountaineers to ensure safe passage en route to a high summit (Mount Everest, for example) a Sherpa usually resides on the high southern slopes of the Himalayas. A Soul Sherpa is an individual with expertise in advising others how to effectively organize and manage their personal business affairs as they or their loved ones age. These areas incorporate (but are not limited to) medical, legal, financial, insurance and emotional matters. A Soul Sherpa possesses the knowledge and compassion to understand the significance and privilege of successfully accompanying a client along this extraordinary journey.
