Today we had our Eldercare special featuring some of the leaders in helping the elderly in Atlanta.
First up we had on Laura Benson Ross with Atlanta LTC. Laura is a long term care insurance expert. She explained the importance of this kind of insurance and that it is much more affordable to get it when you are younger than it is to wait until you are elderly to try and get it. She also said that long term care insurance covers a lot more than nursing homes. To learn more about long term care insurance please go to www.atlantaltc.com
Next up we had on Caroline Bell, President of Preparing For Care. After a successful career in Corporate America Caroline almost overnight went from Corporate Executive to Executive Caregiver to her aging parents. She had to learn everything on her own and that she did. Now her business helps others by providing the education, support and guidance adult children need when caring for elderly parents.

Next up we had on Patricia Ann Bowen with Get Ready For Tomorrow. Pat helps seniors and their families downsize, relocate and liquidate estates.
