Abernethy Laurels, a continuing care retirement community in Newton, NC, has partnered with BB&T to offer a program on preparing for the impact of long-term care. The program titled, The Impact of Long-Term Care, is part of a lunch and learn series to assist seniors in making the right choices for their financial future. The program will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 11:30 am at Abernethy Laurels.
The Impact of Long-Term Care will address long-term care risks, options and funding. For a long time, the only option consumers had to protect themselves from the potential financial pitfalls of a long-term care situation was long-term care insurance. While this still may be a viable option, there are alternatives available for consideration. The program will address the most up-to-date information on long-term care choices and discuss pros and cons of each alternative.
Forbes.com recently headlined with "Policy experts agree: The US system for financing long-term care is crumbling. America’s system for financing long-term care is failing, and the window for creating a payment system that works is rapidly closing.
"As a society, we are anxious about the rising costs of long-term care," shared Kim Harris, Nursing Home Administrator of Abernethy Laurels." Consumers are eagerly seeking information that will aid them in getting protection for the devastating costs of long-term care. Anything we can do to help educate the public on the subject is our duty."
