2009 She Expo – Downtown Fun!

Talking LTC with the gals at the '09 She Expo

Talking LTC with the gals at the '09 She Expo

I so appreciated the wonderful turnout at the She Expo for Women in July!  I think it’s great for us “local gals” to get together and chat about the topics that matter most.   I truly enjoy getting to inform my friends and neighbors about long term care because nearly everyone I speak with has been or will be affected.

No doubt about it – long term care is a women’s issue.  After a life of caring for others, we want to know that we will be looked after in the manner we deserve.  We also want to know that our spouse’s care will not rob us of our lifestyle or their dignity.
Since women, on average, tend to live longer than men and are more likely to acquire debilitating diseases (such as osteoporosis), we receive the vast majority of long term care dollars.  Also because of our longer lives, we are more likely to be placed in a caregiving role than our male counterparts.

About tennesseelongtermcare

Long term care is a risk we all face, regardless of age. Need may result from an accident, a serious health condition or as part of the aging process. The consequences to our physical, financial and emotional well-being can be catastrophic if we postpone planning until after the need for care arises. After all, our health is ever only as good as it is today. Long term care coverage provides a vehicle to guarantee your family an income stream and to maintain lifestyle in the event you have an extended care need. It is vital protection for your family’s personal, emotional and financial well-being. Lindsey & Associates is the Chattanooga area's premiere source for long term care insurance planning. Serving Chattanooga for nearly fifteen years, Lindsey & Associates was founded by Gail R. Lindsey, M.S., CLTC who sought to be an effective advocate for families with extended care needs after a successful career as a therapist. Lindsey & Associates is unique in that their planners are specialists in long term care insurance and approach their work from a perspective of education and advocacy, not the "bottom line". If you feel that you owe it to your family to hear all the options when it comes to your future care, we would encourage you to contact one of our LTC planners. We meet with individuals and families to find the most cost-effective way for them to age in place, at home, with the dignity and care they have earned over a lifetime of hard work.
