Long Term Care: What's New?
We had an outstanding event in November and we have another exciting speaker scheduled for January 16th.
Long Term Care is an area that is becoming increasingly important due to one of the largest generations aging. There is a 70% chance that people over the age of 65 will need Long Term Care at some point during their remaining lives. We invited Katy to speak to our members regarding this topic and hope you find it insightful. We look forward to seeing you there.
