I don't know of any such companies, but a couple of years ago I taught a
couple of evening adult education classes on records management and personal
archives at a local church.  A majority of those who attended were older
people with many questions about what to do with old bills, tax returns,
Medicare/Medicaid paperwork, insurance claims, etc.  

Many of them were just looking for validation in disposing of some the
un-needed (beyond retention period) records they were holding.  Many were
also looking for simple filing schemes and methods to get and stay
organized.  It was a good experience and I may do it again sometime.

The classes were entitled something like "Thinking Inside the Box - Managing
Your Personal Records" and "Thinking Inside the Acid-Free Box - A Guide to
Personal Archives"

Subject: [RM] RM: looking for jobs after retirement: Elder care records

Many of the Records Management professionals have started their own
business as records management consultants after their retirement. I was
wondering has anyone seen RM professionals start a business caring for
the records of the elderly?  It seems to me that there are many older
people who need advice on their records, financial and otherwise.  I am
sure their caretakers would appreciate advice and guidance on what to do
with mounds of paper from medical claims, bills, etc.  Does anyone know
of existing companies?
