U.S. House Of Representatives Passes Long-Term Care Awareness Week Resolution
October 16, 2007 - Washington, D.C. - The United States House of Representatives has passed Concurrent House Resolution (HR 133) supporting the goals of Long-Term Care Awareness Week that takes place November
"This marks a historic milestone for long-term care planning and we applaud the leadership of U.S. Representative Charles W. Boustany, Jr., M.D., (R-LA) who initiated and co-sponsored the House resolution co-signed by 27 Congressional representatives," declared Jesse Slome, Executive Director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). The national organization established Long-Term Care Awareness Week in 2001 as a focal point to encourage awareness of the importance for planning by both consumers and financial professionals.
"As the number of aging Americans increase, long-term care planning will become increasingly important for Americans and their families," noted Congressman Boustany. "Every American owes it to themselves, their family and their loved ones to consider a plan for the potential need for long-term care."
A special Website, www.YourLTCSuccess.com, for Long-Term Care Awareness Week has been established by the Association.
