Long-term care seminars offered locally via TeleNet     Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 3, 2004]  URBANA -- Two programs focusing on long-term care planning and insurance will be offered this fall by University of Illinois Extension over its TeleNet system. "Building a Secure Future for Your Long-Term Care Needs" will be offered from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 30, and "Long-Term Care Insurance: A Difficult Decision" will be offered from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 4.

"When people consider their plans for retirement, financing expensive long-term care services often does not make it into their plans," said Paul McNamara, a U of I Extension consumer economics specialist who is leading the programs. "However, planning for the possibility of long-term care services can ensure access to desired services, protect money, and make managing a difficult situation more bearable for a person's spouse or loved ones."

The fall seminars, which are free to the public, are part of an award-winning educational program on long-term care developed by McNamara and his colleagues on Extension's consumer and family economics team. To participate, people call in on a toll-free number.

"The Sept. 30 program will help people understand the issues involved with planning for long-term care," he explained. "The second program will help consumers learn about their options in regard to long-term care insurance."

Deadline for registration for the first seminar is Sept. 20. More information about the teleconferences can be obtained by contacting local Extension offices or on the "Consumer and Family Economics" website at
