KIRKLAND, WA - May 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- LTC Financial Partners, a leading long term care insurance broker, and Interim HealthCare, a leading provider of home care services, are joining forces to reshape long term care. The two companies will help longer-living Americans keep on living at home in spite of disabilities that now banish millions to nursing homes. "People can get the care they need right where they are, continuing to enjoy the warmth and freedom they're used to, without imposing on loved ones," says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners.
In the two-company service, Interim HealthCare will provide the in-home resources that free family members from care duties; and LTC Financial Partners will provide affordable insurance to pay for the in-home resources. The service begins with an educational component that is free. "We want to make sure everyone understands that, in many instances, they can stay at home safely and independently," says Allan C. Sorensen, CEO of Interim HealthCare. As millions of baby boomers approach retirement, many needing ready access to care services, there is a great need for guidance on where and how to live. According a U.S. census report, from 2010 to 2030 the over-65 population is expected to grow by 75%, to 69 million.

The educational component of the joint service includes features contributed by both companies. LTC Financial Partners has developed a proprietary curriculum called the LTC Outreach and Education Program(tm). It educates the public on how to plan for one's long term care needs early, rather than waiting until health issues arise, when there will be fewer options. Interim HealthCare will offer assessment and care planning tools that will be available online and in the home.
The joint educational program will be offered by --
- * Corporations, to their employees,
* National networks of financial advisors, to their clients, and
* Community groups, to the general public.
"Our two organizations have a common mission: to empower millions to stay in their familiar, loving environment -- happy and independent -- as they age or face disability," says Truesdell.
