Senior Helpers blog - bridge loans

Do you need a temporary solution while waiting for long term funds to come in? Bridge loans are on the rise in popularity when it comes to helping pay for the cost of senior care. Some examples of when it may make sense to use a bridge loan to cover home care costs include waiting for veteran’s benefits applications to be processed, when selling a home, or as an alternative to a reverse mortgage. This type of loan was developed by Elderlife Financial Services, a firm that specializes in helping families pay for senior care. A bridge loan is meant to serve as a “bridge” to help families cover the initial costs of in home care until a more permanent funding solution is available. The loan provides funding on a temporary basis, typically for up to a year. Elderlife’s loan allows up to six different friends or family members to contribute funds toward an elderly loved one’s care.
