My family and I thought my 87-year-old grandmother’s finances were in great shape and ready for anything. We were wrong.
Six months ago we discovered my grandmother had outlived her savings and could no longer afford to stay in her home.
How much would it have to be worth before I could give it up?
Money and success and stability weighed down on my grandpa for most of his life.
I’m in my mid-thirties now, married with two kids on a different continent, and her checks still appear in my dormant Australian account with regularity.
