An Alzheimer’s patient can live an average of 8 to 10 years after being diagnosed.1

Typically, these patients need twice as many hours of long-term care services compared to those without cognitive impairment.2 It’s important to plan for long-term care expenses when clients are healthy because once they exhibit signs of dementia they may be uninsurable. Make your clients aware of Alzheimer’s risk and the costs of care.

Start planning to protect your clients’ retirement from long-term care expenses with affordable, flexible options beginning at age 40.
