CARESULTANTS offers a unique and effective solution for affluent individuals and their families who want to ensure an optimal transition and experience during life’s later stages.
In working with thousands of aging clients over the past forty years, we found that many people who anticipate, or who are already experiencing, cognitive or physical decline often wait until it’s too late to make arrangements. They frequently end up with sub-optimal solutions or worse. And they inevitably place an unbearable burden on their families.
While “reacting” is often necessitated by financial circumstances, individuals who have the resources and who understand the value of planning just haven’t traditionally had a solution. This is why Caresultants was created: To provide 360° of planning and support for individuals who want to age actively and gracefully while minimizing the burden on their families.
The Caresultants’ Comprehensive LifeCare Plan™ proactively addresses dozens of issues and needs so that the risks and costs of aging and the burden on family and loved ones are minimized – while maximizing quality of life.

Digital Media Innovator
I’m a fairly normal guy from Pittsburgh that strayed a long way from home. I’ve been a mentor of tech founders for 30 years, and a father of kids for 11. The similarities are remarkable. My day job has been to help create over 1,100 jobs while founding, financing, building and exiting three digital media companies. Prior to that, I was a Venture Principal at Capital Express (register.com), hosted MoneyHunt on PBS (pre- SharkTank), led over 1,500 people across 14 miles of open sea on kayak, and trekked 1,100 miles through the deserts of Saudi, Jordan and Syria. After a bit of a pandemic reset, I’m now actively investing and directly managing teams in digital media, entertainment, and consumer products. And painting watercolors with my daughter or playing rugby with my son Oh, and sometimes friends have to interpret for my special type of English.
