Experts in Managing All of Your Risks, Especially Long-Term Care Costs

Because health care costs are among the most significant risks to financial security, we incorporate  long-term care considerations in every plan we create. Long-term care (or LTC) is a topic I speak to other advisors about regularly, and one for which I'm a read source for media covering this area.

I became an LTC specialist for personal reasons. After watching my parents deal with their out-of-pocket costs, I realized it's essential to providing clients with comprehensive planning services.

As a couple, my parents represent the spectrum of LTC costs. While my father has lived to see his nineties, my mother developed Alzheimer's at age sixty. Her seventeen years of care included five years of home care and twelve years of facility care. No one should be caught unprepared by these costs, especially at such a financially vulnerable time in their lives.

A 2019 Northwestern Mutual study found that individuals in need of care will look to their children for support for an average of 41% of the resulting expenses. As specialists in planning for long-term care, we'll work with you to ensure you have a plan in place for any future long-term care needs your parents or you may experience.
