How the H**L do we afford long term care?

Updated on

The Mavericks sit down with Mr. Aaron O’Hearn, founder/CEO of Worthright. 

The Mavericks are all about challenging the current options in aging and Worthright helps navigate a big concern, Money!! 

Worthright helps families of aging adults plan and pay for a high quality of life and independence as they age, regardless of where they are on the caregiving journey – from adult children who are planning ahead to those who are thrust into the role of caregiving after a medical incident – and everyone in between. 

We’ll discuss: 

  • Why is it as adults – we’re offered financial assistance for just about everything in our lives; yet there’s no financial assistance available to families seeking high quality care for their loved ones.
  • An Interesting thought – A common example: parents will often co-sign or become a co-borrower for their kids to secure financial assistance, like taking out a student loan, or a car loan. Why shouldn’t it be possible for a now adult child to help their parent secure the same level of assistance for something so important to the family: their care.
  • There are many creative solutions to find financial resources for your loved one; however, it can be tough to see them or even know about them when your number one priority is care for your loved one!

Join us as we tackle the challenge of the financial requirement for aging services.
