How to Talk to Your Parents About Long-Term Care

By Cameron Huddleston on 12/9/22 9:30 AM

As your parents age, there’s a good chance they will need long-term care. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, more than half of Americans turning 65 today will develop a disability serious enough that they will need daily help with the basic activities of living. Most will need care for less than two years, but 1 in 7 will need assistance for more than five years.

As tough as it might be to imagine your parents being unable to care for themselves, the thought of discussing this possibility with them probably seems even harder. But it’s important to talk to your parents sooner rather than later to develop a plan for long-term care if they ever need it. If you wait for an emergency to strike, emotions will be running high and you’ll likely have fewer options to deal with your parents’ need for care.

Making Sense of Medicare: Part A

By John Norce on 5/26/22 10:00 AM

On June 30, 1965, President Johnson signed H.R. 6675, which led to the creation of Medicare and Medicaid. Under this bill, Medicare Parts A and B were created and today these benefits are commonly referred to as “Original Medicare”.

To understand Medicare, it’s important to start with Original Medicare, because Parts A and B are often considered its building blocks. Having a solid understanding of the costs and benefits of Original Medicare is important since almost everyone is required to enroll in Parts A and B when seeking post-retirement health benefits. For example, to enroll in additional benefits such as a Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage plan, enrollment in Original Medicare is a must. Additionally, many employer-retiree plans, Tricare, and other corporate-sponsored retiree programs require enrollment into Original Medicare as part of your post-retirement health benefits.

How to Protect Aging Clients from Financial Exploitation

By Cameron Huddleston, Carefull Family Finance Expert on 3/31/22 10:00 AM

Financial exploitation of older adults is rampant, and the problem will only get worse as America’s population continues to age.

In fact, the rate at which adults over the age of 60 can expect to experience financial exploitation—1 in 20—is higher than the incidence of many age-related diseases, according to research published in The Journals of Gerontology. And that’s likely an underestimate because many older adults are unwilling to report exploitation.
