Shaping affordable pathways for aging with dignity
This was the subject of a paper recently published by The Scan Foundation. It concluded:
“Americans are ill-prepared for a future with raising rates of disability and increasing spending on long term supports and services. Given the gridlock in Washington, a social insurance approach to this problem seems unlikely in the foreseeable future. New strategies are needed to ensure that Americans with functional impairments will not be plunged into poverty or experience sharp drops in their daily living standard.”
We agree, and a part of our mission is to engage in this process. Our Chairman is currently the Government Relations Chair of the San Francisco-Peninsula Chapter of NAIFA, the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors. He is reaching out to State and Federal legislators, hoping to educate them on long term care planning issues. He is also Past Chairman of the National LTC Network, the nation’s largest distributor of long term care insurance. We pride ourselves in contributing to the increasing dialogue of how Americans can age with dignity.
