Los Angeles, CA, August 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Long term care planning is especially important for women who live alone, declares one of the nation’s long term care insurance experts. For the present they also benefit from some unique savings opportunities.
“Long term care is a woman’s issue,” explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. “Women provide the majority of unpaid informal care and they also have the greatest need for caring Americans that are going to need care.”
According to Slome women living alone have a particular reason to do planning and to consider long-term care insurance if they can afford the coverage and meet the health qualifications required today by insurers. “There is specific information that women who are single, divorced or widowed need to know about the issue,” Slome explains.
To assist women interested in learning more the organization has just posted a new five-minute educational video. The newest video just added to the organization’s online library is called Long Term Care Insurance Women and is specifically designed to touch on the most important facts. “We want women to understand the important basics before they begin even considering next steps,” Slome says.
Members of the national trade association are offering free education and no-obligation long term care insurance quotes for policies from leading insurance companies. “We have members in all states committed to helping individuals,” Slome explains.
