STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT LONG-TERM CARE: AGING ANSWERS PROVIDES A POWERFUL AND HOPEFUL MESSAGE FOR CONSUMERS
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI - Sept. 23, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) -- Elder care
has replaced childcare as the number one issue that baby-boomers in this
country struggle with everyday. Long-term care is one of those topics that
we would rather avoid than discuss. Finally, one of the nation's leading
long-term care experts has had the courage and passion to bridge the
information gap. Valerie VanBooven RN, BSN, CMC, professional speaker,
author and long-term care expert is about to release her latest book,
Aging Answers: Secrets to Successful Long-Term Care Planning, Caregiving,
and Crisis Management. Release is scheduled for mid-October 2003.
"It is time for us all to realize that long-term care is not an
entitlement, and that if we don't address these issues head-on within our
own families, our opportunity for choice may disappear! There are ways to
successfully plan ahead, successful ways to care for an aging adult, and
manage crisis. This book gives families the tools to start that
conversation, and get the answers they need," states VanBooven.
Some of the questions Valerie is most frequently asked:
- "How is my aging parent going to afford long-term care?"
- "Medicaid won't pay for Assisted Living...so will my parent be
- "How do I know which home care provider to choose, I have heard some
good things, and some horror stories!?"
- "My parent doesn't perceive the need for any assistance- although I know
that she needs help at home.... How do I begin that conversation?"
- "Am I too young for long-term care insurance? What is the RIGHT age to
purchase a plan?"
These questions come from audiences all over the country, sometimes via
seminars and workshops, and through email. The decision was made to answer
all of these questions, in a format that anyone can read and understand.
Time Magazine, Senior Market Advisor, and Compensation and Benefits
Magazine have recently interviewed Valerie for her expertise in long-term
care issues, and senior needs.
November is National Family Caregiver's Month.
