Apply a Healthy Solution to the Senior Care Challenge

Paying for health care at any age can be challenging, but for seniors the burden can be especially difficult. If you, as a caregiver, are worried about how they will maintain the quality care they require, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) may offer you and those in your care a unique solution.

A HECM, also known as a reverse mortgage, allows adult homeowners, age 62 and older, to tap their home equity in the form of a loan that does not have to be repaid until the borrower leaves the home. Homeowners, however, must continue to maintain their home, pay property taxes and homeowner’s insurance, and otherwise comply with the loan terms.

The result is, homeowners can continue living in their own home while knowing they have the financial resources lined up to help pay for their ongoing health care needs.

Homeowners can access their home equity several ways – lump sum, monthly payments, payments for life or as a line of credit that can grow over time. For added flexibility, they can also combine payment options.
