Long Term Care Planning Network
As you age and need more care do you want to avoid:
- Losing independence and control?
- Being a burden on family/friends?
- Financial hardship?
- Relying on government programs?
The good news is that the Long Term Care Planning Network has developed the tools, strategies and expertise to help Canadians and their professional advisors make long term care planning effective and comprehensive.
The vast majority of us want to age with dignity and control. But it takes planning – and that long term care planning needs to be a part of every financial and/or retirement plan written today.
We all take delight in planning for vacations and special events but when it comes to planning for old age, we literally run the other way. Aging and long term care only happen to other people, so we don’t need to talk about them – at least not yet. Why does this happen?
- It won’t happen to me
- The government will look after me
- My spouse will look after me
- The kids will look after me
- I’ll have enough money
- I won’t outlive my money
Misinformation, lack of knowledge about care costs or not knowing where to start can stop us from doing the planning we all need to complete.
