Boise, ID – May 18th, 2012
– Interim HealthCare hosted a special event on May 17th
to welcome the non-profit organization 3in4 Association and its spokesperson, elder care expert & author Dr. Marion as they stop at Interim’s offices in Eagle. This stop is part of a 50-city bus tour to promote awareness for long-term health care planning. Interim HealthCare, the largest franchisor of community-based home care, hospice, and healthcare staffing services, is a national sponsor of the tour.
“As a leading home healthcare provider, we are very excited about this opportunity to partner with the 3in4 Association and bring their message to our community” said Eric Mott. “We were so exicted to have everyone join us in welcoming Dr. Marion and learn more about her simple tips to help the millions of Americans who will need long-term care, but are unprepared for its financial impact.”
The event took place on May 17th
, at Interim’s offices at 1065 E. Winding Creek Drive, Eagle, ID. Dr. Marion presented the following message which she is taking across the country:
- S - SITUATION. It’s a fact: we're getting older and living longer than ever before. Everyone will be impacted by long-term care in some way, but no one is talking about it. If you won't need it, your loved ones might.
- O - OPTIONS. What services are available in your area, and what do they cost? From in-home aides to nursing homes, long-term care can cost thousands per month, and is not covered by traditional insurance or Medicare. Do your homework so you know what to expect.
- S - SOLUTIONS. If you wait until a crisis hits, it’s too late. Take time now to research solutions. Talk with a financial planner, look at government programs, or ask your family how they might help. Review options like reverse mortgages and long-term care insurance to determine if they’re the right fit for you.
“It’s exciting to see so many different organizations come together to support the 3in4 Need More campaign,” added 3in4 Board Member Chris Orestis, President of Life Care Funding Group. “We share a common goal: to provide Americans with much-needed information and resources so they can make informed decisions about their future health care needs.”
Interim HealthCare is also offering a free downloadable e-book with detailed insights and information about long term care planning. The booklet can be accessed by going to http://www.interimhealthcare.com/News/Partnerships/3-in-4-Need-More
