| From

KIRKLAND, Wash. - Apr. 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- On April 24th at 1 PM (Eastern Time) LTC Financial Partners, the nation's most experienced long term care insurance brokerage, will sponsor a webcast titled "Helping Employees and Pre-Retirees: Managing Productivity and Finances."

Dan Cahn - (c) Send2PressAs the American workforce continues to mature, the inevitable increase in the need for long term care services threatens to undermine the productivity of many of our nation's employers. The impact due to working caregivers already costs businesses as much as $34 billion a year, according to a recent survey by the National Alliance of Caregiving, a non-profit coalition, and the MetLife Foundation.

Mature personnel, often the most valuable, are most susceptible to health and financial crises, but that's not all. "Many younger employees have family members who suddenly develop long term healthcare needs," says Dan Cahn, LTC Financial Partners Senior Vice President. "So the employees become part-time caregivers; this takes time and energy away from their jobs."

The webcast will probe the depths of the problem and present solutions. "Fortunately," says Cahn, "there are simple measures that cost the company little or nothing." This is important in today's highly competitive environment, he emphasizes.

The webcast, a live online event, will be hosted by, the human resources portal. The moderator will be Florence Katz, an 18-year veteran of Mercer Human Resource Consulting, a global leader in HR support services and products.

Featured speakers will be Sally C. Hass, Employee Benefits Magazine, "Employee of the Year" from Weyerhaeuser; and Robert N. Bua, founder and CEO of CareScout, which offers America's first objective eldercare ratings system.
