Our Story – By Bob Mauterstock
Since I retired from my financial planning practice seven years ago I have been talking to financial advisors all over the country. I have learned a great deal from these conversations. One of my most surprising observations was: Very few financial advisors are prepared to deal with the issues that their aging clients face.
Most advisors have focused their careers on building their clients assets for retirement and managing their money to reach these goals. But now that many of their clients are retiring (10,000 boomers a day!) they don’t have the necessary skills to protect their clients from the ravages of long term care and the complexities of aging.
Few families have had the important conversations necessary to ensure a secure retirement for mom and dad and guarantee a smooth transfer of their legacy to their children.
This past year I met a woman who understands the trials and tribulations families go through as their elders face the difficulties of aging. Annalee Kruger has run a very successful business for over 10 years, Care Right Inc., to help families develop long term care solutions and provide the needed care for failing loved ones.
Together we discussed the importance of an education program to train financial advisors to assist their clients in dealing with the difficulties of aging. As a result we have created an extensive program for financial advisors entitled “The Elder Planning Specialist Program.
This program will be web based and will offer ten modules dealing with everything from Medicare and Medicaid to Legacy Planning. Don’t fall behind your competitors. Become an Elder Planning Specialist now!
