CHICAGO, Illinois -- Tight Ship Advisors’ Founder & CEO, Jill Dillingham today announced that her company, a concierge home, health, and lifestyle assistance business that provides tailored services for aging adults, is stepping up to offer specialized services to help those in need during the COVID-19 crisis. Through April 30, 2020, Tight Ship Advisors will be donating the first three hours of service to help aging adults meet their needs during the stay-at-home order. 


For aging adults and people with underlying conditions, leaving home during the current coronavirus pandemic to run even essential errands such as grocery shopping and picking up prescriptions is a dangerous risk. The economic effects of the pandemic will impact retirement planning and financial management, as well. Tight Ship Advisors offers a solution that allows vulnerable populations to receive help protecting their homes, health and lifestyles during this difficult time. 


“We are personal assistants who understand the business of being a senior,” said Jill Dillingham, Founder & CEO of Tight Ship Advisors. “So we asked ourselves how we could use our expertise to help the community during this global pandemic. That’s why we decided to donate a portion of our time and resources through the end of this month to ensure that people who are unable to leave their homes get what they need to stay healthy and safe.


“I started Tight Ship Advisors in 2018, because I saw firsthand how my aging loved ones were having difficulty finding qualified assistance to help with daily money management, navigating Medicare and insurance, and coordinating with her CPA and lawyer. In helping them, I realized that this was a real need that many older people face -- Tight Ship Advisors aims to help people manage these types of time-consuming, complicated areas so that people can enjoy their lives, like I want my mom to be able to do.”
