The consequences of aging have a massive impact on families and finances. Many families are in crisis when an older parent needs long-term health care services. Few people understand that traditional health insurance, including Medicare, pays little to nothing toward long-term health care. Family caregivers face physical and emotional burdens. Professional care is expensive, and costs are skyrocketing due to great demand for services, inflation, and higher labor costs.
Matt has been in the long-term care industry for 20+ years. Prior to that, Matt was a radio personality and program director. He worked in many markets, including Chicago, San Antonio, Des Moines, Lexington, Champaign, and Carbondale.
He is an expert in long-term health care, planning, LTC Insurance, caregiving, and the political implications thereof. He has submitted testimony to U.S. House and Senate committees.
