Companies can prevent serious losses often mounting into the millions.... These are mostly productivity losses due to care-related absenteeism and reduced attentiveness to one’s work.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
Seattle long-term care expert Christine Khemis wins honors as well as success by helping companies and their employees learn to pursue “healthy wealth.” Today the Personal PR Forum (PPR Forum]) applauds Khemis in a public statement at http://pprforum.ning.com. The statement cites Khemis’ recognition as a Qualifying Member of the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the premier association of financial professionals.
This is the seventh year Khemis has been so honored by MDRT. In addition, the PPR Forum statement applauds her for excellence in worksite education promoting economic and human betterment.
“Khemis gets her financial fitness message across to the general public as well as the worksite,” says Dick Samson, director of PPR Forum. “And her message is vital, especially in today’s economy. It’s to build ‘healthy wealth’ by learning to plan for long-term care.” Such services, contrary to common belief, are not ordinarily covered by Medicare or regular health insurance.
By developing the knowhow to plan for long-term care (LTC), employees may enhance their “healthy wealth.” Proper planning, Khemis explains, protects lifestyles and incomes in case workers or family members ever need LTC. Lack of planning can bring personal hardship including financial problems such as exhausting 401k or other retirement savings.
Employers, for their part, may enjoy healthier bottom lines as employees learn to plan for long-term care. “Companies can prevent serious losses often mounting into the millions,” says Khemis. “These are mostly productivity losses due to care-related absenteeism and reduced attentiveness to one’s work. There are also losses of valuable expertise as seasoned employees retire early to tend an uninsured loved one.”
A member of PPR Forum, Christine Khemis, MBA, CLTC, is a licensed insurance agent and long-term care specialist and partner with LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), a national agency of long-term care professionals. Her primary goal is to educate her clients to help them protect their independence, assets and peace of mind. She has a straightforward approach when consulting with clients, helping them with personalized long-term care plans and providing innovative solutions for their individual needs.
Since 2004 she has helped large and small employers across industry lines who are concerned about their employees and the effect that long-term care needs may have on a family, both financial and emotional. “In boardrooms all over America corporate executives and employees are increasingly aware they need to defend their retirement,” she says. Khemis also provides accredited educational programs for accountants, attorneys, and insurance and financial professionals.
