Oct. 28: Pat Giacalone on long-term health care insurance

OP staffer Rikki Baum, after caring for her elderly parents and realizing how costly their care is, two years ago bought a long-term care policy for herself.

“Like many boomers, my elderly parents are in failing health,” said Baum, director of research and evaluation in Education Partnerships. ”Fortunately, the long-term care policies they had the foresight to acquire 20 years ago have allowed us to provide them 24/7 care in their own home.”

If you’re considering purchasing long-term care insurance for yourself, your parents or another loved one, you can learn more on Monday, Oct. 28, 12 to 1 p.m. in 12322 Franklin, at a brown bag lunch sponsored by OP Staff Assembly.

Speaker Pat Giacalone has been in the insurance industry since 1991. She is a certified long-term care agent and licensed with the California Partnership for Long-Term Care program. She is known for her in-depth knowledge and straightforward approach to helping people understand practical and affordable solutions for their long-term care needs.

An independent agent representing Genworth Life Insurance Company and John Hancock, Giacalone is a member of the Marin County Section on Aging and other community organizations.
