Ep. 23: The 411 on Long Term Care Insurance

“The emotional challenge of a health care crisis is much easier to handle when the financial challenge has been addressed.”


As we age, there can be significant expenses associated with a prolonged illness that may require special care. This is where long-term care insurance comes in. For most consumers, the purchase of long-term care insurance policies requires serious consideration. The policies can be difficult to understand, a result of widely varying benefits and costs, as well as confusing jargon and phrases.

Join Cathleen as she meets with Patricia Bennett, a long-term care broker and President of Longevity Planning, to discuss what types of policies are available, what to look for in a good broker, and what the benefits are. Pat also highlights the major differences, advantages, and pitfalls of long-term care insurance.
