November is Long Term Care Awareness Month

2009 is the third year since Congress declared November to be Long Term Care Awarenss month.  This is a time for all Americans to reflect and plan ahead for what they would do in the event of an extended care need.  

The decision on how to fund one’s future care is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life.  It affects those who care about you and those you care about.  Those who have taken the time to plan ahead are to be commended.

However, long term care is a shared responsibility.  And there may be many people who you care about who have not planned ahead or are unaware of their options.  Consider recognizing LTC Awareness month by asking friends, neighbors, business associates and loved ones if they have had a complimentary overview of their long term care options.  They may be interested; they may n0t be.  But we will have given them some very important information.

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".
