Kennedy Care Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

October is Long-Term Care Planning Month! This month encourages both seniors and those who care for them to develop a plan for long-term care later in life. Long-term care planning also includes non-medical care, such as personal care services (much like the ones we provide here at Kennedy Care!).

Nearly 40% of people underestimate future costs for long-term care, leading families to be worried about how to manage their financial resources for care later in life. Please review the following links to educate yourself and begin developing a plan – it’s never too early!
