Also, Remember - many financial planners and banks will work with you to evaluate using a line of credit, reverse mortgage, deferring mortgage payments, etc....
Even if you can’t see or visit friends and family, how about using tools like Facetime, Messenger, Skype, Zoom.us … to be able to talk and even see your family and friends using your cellular phone, IPad, or computer.
Need to talk to someone, need to be pointed in the right direction, know someone that you are concerned about in Whistler? Contact a MAC Board member by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can help!
