PROGRAM:   Carl Duncan is program director for the month. He has done a lot of delegating this year. Which has made him very happy.

Ms. Bonney Deuschle (Carl's Daughter and Bill Foerster's niece – gotta keep them honest!). Bonney is a native of Littleton and member of Littleton Sertoma club. She went to Heritage High. Went to the University of Northern Colorado. Degree in Finance. Sells long term care insurance.

She is with Genworth Financial. She gave a powerpoint presentation talking about the benefits/need for long term care insurance (Complete with worksheet and evaluation form.)

Important facts and figures:

  • Long term care kicks in when you cannot perform 2 or more of the 6 activities of daily living.
  • 42% of Americans who reach the age of 70 will need long term care.
  • $62,400 annually is the average nursing home cost.
  • Common long term care options are to lean on family, the government (medicare/medicaid), personal assets or to transfer the risk (private insurance).
  • If you are looking for the government to take care of you then you need to know two things. First, hiding your assets is now a felony. Second, the government recently extended the look back period for looking at your assets to 5 years. If you are middle class it is now your responsibility to pay for your own long term care.
  • Medical plans only cover the specialized care, not custodial. Disability only covers your loss of income. You can end up spending all of your disability on paying for your custodial care.
  • Look at daily/monthly benefit amounts, elimination periods, benefit periods, inflation protection, premium discounts and care coordination.

Movie review: Must see Flags of our Father.


"We must open the doors of opportunity. But we must also equip our people to walk through those doors." -- Lyndon B. Johnson

"Take away my people, but leave my factories, and soon grass will grow on the factory floors. Take away my factories, but leave my people, and soon we will have a new and better factory." -- Andrew Carnegie

"We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge." -- John Naisbitt

Success: We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.

Risk: You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

Imagination: A mind stretched by new ideas never regains its original dimensions.
