Additionally, recognizing the unique needs of families coping with Dementia, Charles has achieved the CDP® designation from the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.

At Pelleton Capital Management, the philosophy is clear: Long-Term Care affects the entire family, not just the individual. This perspective drives their approach to creating comprehensive Long-Term Care plans that are not only financially sound but also empathetic to the emotional and physical challenges faced by families dealing with dementia. Their strategies focus on maximizing current assets, minimizing taxes, and providing peace of mind for both clients and their loved ones. 

Understanding the increased vulnerabilities of pre and post-retirees, especially those impacted by Dementia, Charles emphasizes the importance of having a robust plan in place. He advocates for a Long-Term Care Roadmap that addresses the emotional, physical, and financial repercussions that Dementia can have on a family.

Beyond his role at Pelleton Capital Management, Charles is a co-author of two books, a podcaster, and a contributing author to prestigious publications like Kiplinger, The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News, Forbes, Fox Business, and more. His insights and guidance are particularly valuable for families navigating the complexities of Dementia care and financial planning.

His personal life is marked by a heartwarming love story. Having met his wife Sheri on a blind date, Charles knew instantly she was the one for him. Their over 40-year-long marriage stands as a testament to this intuition, a journey he considers his best choice ever made. When asked about his greatest accomplishment, Charles doesn't hesitate to say, "Our daughters!" showcasing his deep family values and the pride he takes in his role as a father.
