It's still LTC Awareness Month, and we're still focused on help for the family caregiver. It's very easy for caregivers to fall into the trap of social isolation and lonliness. The focus is always on the needs of the care recipient, and the caregiver may feel guilty for wanting things or activities for themselves. LTC insurance is all about helping the caregiver help us better and longer, without wearing out.
Socialization is a basic human need. We weren't created to be isolated and alone, and we shouldn't set our kids up to feel isolated and alone. When we own LTC insurance, we own a bucket of money that brings in people to help our kids help us.
It's much easier to look at a $10,000 monthly home care bill if an insurance plan is paying it, or even some of it. It's all about where you sign the check. Would you rather have you and/or your kids sign the front of the check to pay for care, or sign the back?
What happens when the bank accounts are depleted? Our already worn out kids will then be faced with a Medicaid nursing home.
There is a great webinar scheduled for December 8th at 10 AM pst/1 PM est entitled, "Caring for the Caregiver". It will be full of tools and resources to help family caregivers with what they need to not feel so alone during a very rough season of life, especially because no one knows how long that season will be. you can register for it at https://www.buddyins.com/learning-center/?_sft_media-type=webinar#Learning_Center_Search
