September 2016

In preparation for a well earned retirement, John made arrangements for his active and future clients to be managed by Maggie Cody-Reckert at The Next Step/ElderAssist. Given his role as the founding director of The Next Step, Inc., this brings his support of the elderly full circle and ensures the continuity of the critical services he and Maggie provide. John remains in a supporting role of The Next Step.

John's Letter to Current and Future Clients


Thank you for the opportunity to support your geriatric care and financial planning needs, our team is ready to help you take 'The Next Step' in your care of your elderly loved ones.
