Visit Alzhiemers Association site Nursing Home Ombudsman Association Each Christmas, Cornerstone Wealth Management looks forward to participating in the Silver Bells gift giving program, organized by the Nursing Home Ombudsman Association of the Bluegrass (NHOA). NHOA’s mission is to improve the quality of care for residents of long-term care facilities. Too many nursing home residents do not receive Christmas gifts and it’s always a pleasure for CWM to give gifts to nursing home residents via the Silver Bells program. If you are interested in gift giving contact NHOA at 859 277-9215 or drop off a wrapped gift to our office the first week in December.

Erich spends a day speaking to students at Frederick Douglas High School about budgeting, credit, income taxes, car loans, living costs, saving, and more. Preparing our kids for the future and arming them with information and skills that can lead to their success as financially responsible adults is important to Erich.
