“Navigating Long-Term Care Insurance”

Program: Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI) is one of many ways individuals can help to pay for their long-term care needs later in life. Often, a LTCI policy is purchased years before the individual needs to make a claim on the policy or use the policy benefits. When it is time to make a claim, some may find it challenging to understand and interpret their LTCI policies. This month’s web seminar will help professionals and family caregivers to better understand LTCI so they can assist older adults and their families to more easily navigate their LTCI policies.

Presenter: Lakelyn Hogan, gerontologist, caregiver advocate, Home Instead Senior Care

“Where to Draw the Line: Boundary settings for caregivers”

Program: Sometimes we have to take the time and ask ourselves “where do I draw the line” when it comes to caregiving. It is important to take a step back and evaluate where our caregiving boundaries lie. This learning event is designed to help caregivers understand how to respect and set boundaries when it comes to caring for a loved one. Participants will benefit from communication skills that will help them set ground rules between them and their care recipient. This will help avoid conflict in their vulnerable relationships.
