The Alzheimer's Foundation of America's Educational Program has just hosted a one-hour educational program featuring Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI).

"It is my pleasure to speak to caregivers serving consumers and families with a member suffering from Alzheimer's Disease," shared Slome, AALTCI's director.  "This disease ravages millions of Americans and impacts their families and loved ones."

As part of the presentation, Slome shared an overview of the role played by long-term care insurance, conveyed the latest data regarding long-term care insurance buyers and claimants.  "Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related dementia issues comprise the largest claims that long-term care insurers pay every year," Slome noted.  "If you live a long life, the chances of needing long-term care increase significantly as does the risk of suffering from AD.  There are so many long-term care insurance professionals who have been personally touched by this and thereby become passionate advocates for this important protection."

The presentation What Caregivers Should Know About Long-Term Care Insurance is available for viewing online via the Alzheimer's Federation website.  To access go to www.alzfdn.org/webinar-archives/.

The American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance advocates for the importance of long-term care planning.   Established in 1998, the organization connects consumers with knowledgeable professionals who are independent advisors for no-cost, no-obligation long-term care insurance quotes and policy comparisons.
