Long-Term Care: Meeting Health & Personal Needs
April 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join Madison Public Library Foundation from noon–1 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, for a free online presentation featuring several local experts who will speak on the topic of Long-Term Care: Meeting Health & Personal Needs.
For many people, the phrase “long-term care” conjures images of nursing homes and assisted living facilities. However, long-term care increasingly includes measures that help older adults remain in their homes as they receive services. According to AARP, more than two-thirds of people over 65 will require some type of long-term care in their in their remaining lifetime. Being prepared for the long-term care of your loved ones and yourself is a smart way to maintain control of your property, finances and health. It also takes the burden off your family and prevents them from feeling overwhelmed down the road. If you’re in your 30s or 40s, it’s not too early to start planning for your own long-term care!
Our three speakers — attorney Meghan M. Teigen of Johnson Teigen LLC, Oakwood Lutheran Senior Ministries CEO Reginald Hislop, and Neckerman Insurance Services Vice President and Agent Dale Kalscheur — will discuss:
- the importance of legal planning with robust powers of attorney
- a brief introduction to Wisconsin Medicaid as a long-term care provider, and program eligibility
- important planning considerations unique to married couples
- how estate planning and long-term care planning objectives can overlap and conflict
- how home care, assisted living and retirement communities fit into the planning picture
- different insurance plans available to protect one’s estate against the cost of long-term care, with information about the advantages and suitability of different plans
