Greetings, Dear Friends and Clients,
Happy Long-Term Care Awareness Month!
Long-Term Care Awareness Month is recognized each November as a way to bring attention to the fact that - especially as people live longer - they need to think ahead and prepare for their care as they age. Even though many people think they'll never need long-term care, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports 70 percent of people who reach age 65 will require long-term care services.
And the need is even greater for women, who typically outlive their husbands. The majority of nursing home residents, as well as those with Alzheimer's disease, are women.
For too many people, long-term care is the 6,000-pound elephant in the room. People don't think twice about getting homeowners insurance, car insurance and health insurance, but for whatever reason they don't like to think about growing older and needing long-term care.
The best time to save money and plan for your long-term care is right now.
Service First and Always
I've been specializing exclusively in long-term care insurance (LTCi) for more than 25 years! It's been fun the whole time. I turn 63 this month. I'm still feeling good, have a high level of wisdom, energy, insight, experience, and love what I do. I'm more enthused about LTCi than ever. I've seen hundreds of LTCi policies pay claims for my clients. My work is appreciated and makes a huge difference in people's lives. As long as I have my wits and physical heath I plan to continue working.
I remain a solo practice and do not routinely call for policy reviews. If you have any questions about your LTCi, how it works, or think you need to collect from it, please call or email me. I will be very responsive.
I need your Yelp
I have a new Yelp page - I hope you'll visit it!
