We will take a closer look at Long Term Care, the different types, and the problems of access and cost with Pat Armstrong, Distinguished Research Professor at York University and Author of "A Place To Call Home - Long Term Care in Canada". Pat has also been a spokesperson on the state of LTC during the Covid crisis.
Neela White will talk about her own family's experience with LTC and conversations that advisors can have with their clients about steps to take to help prepare and educate their clients about the various choices. No one wants to plan for their parents becoming incapacitated or their own personal health decline, but it has never been as crucial and important to do so as it is now. We all want to maintain our autonomy, and independence as long as possible.
