After a lifetime of saving, seniors and their families enjoy the benefits of careful retirement planning including living life on their terms in a senior living community. But, in moments, an unforeseen accident can threaten the financial health of a senior and result in a loss of their hard earned assets.
Fires, slip and falls, scooter accidents and even dog bites are all incidents where seniors in senior living communities can be held personally liable. The largest advocate for professionally-managed, consumer driven senior living communities in the country, the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA), is educating both senior communities and the residents they serve to help them avoid financial hardship due to accidents and third party claims. ALFA is highlighting an innovative product called Asset Guard Endorsement (A.G.E.) liability insurance, which closes the gap to help protect seniors’ finances and reduce costs and risk for the communities where they live.
"Seniors deserve the opportunity to protect their financial assets if an accident occurs and third parties file claims; the A.G.E. liability insurance program can help,” said Jamison Gosselin, SVP of Marketing at ALFA. “A.G.E. liability insurance is no ordinary renters insurance program. It is a renters insurance option that has been crafted to serve seniors choosing a senior living community and families who want to protect their loved ones’ assets.”
A.G.E. provides seniors with coverage to protect their assets and lifestyle against third party claims resulting from bodily injury or damage to their property. It also helps senior care communities by decreasing risk and keeping their residents safe.
“The fastest growing segment of our population is seniors 65 and older. During a challenging transition to a new home or environment, seniors might not realize or think about potential accidents where they can be held personally liable,” said Chuck Pedone, Regional Vice President of Marketing for Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) which underwrites this coverage. “Accidents can and do happen. This coverage is designed to provide the very best protection to both seniors and the communities where they live.”
