New: Extended Care Conversation Guide

In the first part of the year, we are focusing on resources and tools to help advisors have proactive conversations about extended care planning. Today, we debut our new Extended Care Conversation Guide, filled with talking points and leading questions designed to engage your clients. Watch for additional resources in the coming weeks. New: Extended Care Conversation Guide This 7 page conversation guide was developed to facilitate better extended care discussions. It is meant to be used to learn a prospect or client’s perspective on long-term care. As with many conversations about aging, long-term care can be a sensitive topic.
