I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Genworth. I attended a live event and received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
About 5 years ago, my family made the hard decision to move my grandmother out of her apartment that she had lived in for the last 50 plus years and into an assisted living facility. For everyone, it was hard to discuss. Besides explaining to my grandmother that she just couldn’t take care of herself anymore, it was extremely difficult to navigate the ins and outs of long term care. At the time it was stressful and scary. It made me realize that this was a conversation that everyone should have had together years before and not in an emergency situation.
Genworth ‘s long term care insurance works to make sure individuals have the financial resources they need to cover extended care, whether at home, at an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Even the most hefty of savings accounts don’t go far in the event of a long-term illness, chronic condition or general aging.
Genworth’s #LetsTalk Tour has hit the road across the country to get people talking about long term care with aging family members. They want you to get the conversation open and going. Join actor and author Rob Lowe as Genworth’s celebrity spokesperson on the tour!
As the oldest of three children, I feel one day it is going to be my responsibility to have this conversation with my parents. It’s refreshing to know that Genworth is here to help guide me through this planning process. The sooner the conversation happens, the better. It’s easier to plan in advance when you are not under time and emotional constraints.
Follow the #LetsTalk Tour as it travels to Chicago, IL (7/9-7/13), Los Angeles, CA (8/30-9/1), San Francisco, CA (9/6-9/7), and Dallas, TX (10/2-10/5) and Let’s Talk! The #LetsTalk event is a great way to speak directly with Genworth representatives, get facts and other educational materials surrounding the Long Term Care topic.
