A retired Alabama nurse with a passion for planning has helped establish a new website which will assist consumers learn about Long Term Health Care Planning and Health news.
Terri Flynn, RN is the publisher of www.longtermcareplanningnews.com. The website, in addition to including articles on LTC planning and health issues, has resource links of videos and websites from many sources to help consumers as they plan for their future retirement.
“Some people fail to include health related calculations as part of their planning. The end result is a financial and emotional impact on loved ones. I saw this many times in my years as a nurse. Just as important is the availability of quality care especially as people age. Without the proper resources and advance planning, these resources will be limited. This means an increased reliance of government welfare programs for healthcare. For many, this means a spend-down of hard earned assets before they would qualify,” said Flynn.
Flynn notes the emotional and financial burdens placed on family can be huge. She says so many people fail to think about these things when they are younger and healthier.
She said the U.S. Surgeon General, Vice Admiral Vivek H. Murthy, M.D., reminded the public recently at the White House National Conference on aging that all of us are getting older.
“All of us our aging no matter what age we are at, to be clear,” Vivek said.
Flynn said the Surgeon General says as people age they still want to remain independent.
“The conversations we have had (with parents) is how they can stay healthy and independent as they get older recognizing they want to be part of their children’s lives but they don’t want to be dependent on their kids for everything,” he said.
This is why Flynn started http://longtermcareplanningnews.com.
“I really want people ages 40 to 65 to have a place where they can learn more about planning options and health issues so they can make the proper planning decisions. Be it savings and 401ks, Long Term Care Insurance, and ways to be more healthy, these are all things people need to start thinking about well before they become “old”,” Flynn explained.
The website will also publish submitted articles from professionals about planning ideas and those who have experienced issues regarding Long Term Health Care. Those articles can be submitted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
