Everyone who gets the need for long-term care (LTC) planning has a different approach to explaining the need to people who are still not all too familiar with the concept.
Marion Somers, Ph.D., a veteran geriatric care manager who believes passionately about the need for LTC planning and long-term care insurance (LTCi), helped organizers of the 3in4 Need More LTC outreach effort in the summer of 2011 by driving a 3in4 Need More promotional bus around the country.
Somers, known in the LTC community as Doctor Marion, will be returning to the driver’s seat this spring for the 3in4 Association’s spring LTC outreach bus tour.
Here is a preliminary version of what Doctor Marion plans to say when she stops to talk to consumers, local reporters and others about her views on LTC planning.
It is important to understand the benefits of long term care insurance (LTCi) and how it can be used to help protect your family and finances. Most people envision themselves living a long life, investing and planning throughout their working years to create a financially secure feature where they can enjoy spending time doing the things they enjoy the most. As part of your financial planning process, it’s important to understand the potential impact that needing long-term care may have on your assets, your family, and your future.
