Dear _________________________

There is an education gap in our country and I am requesting that you provide a 'care-years planning education program' for those of us who are boomers with aging parents, soon-to-be retirees or young seniors.

Long-term care (whether at home or in a nursing home) is the single largest out-of-pocket cost we face over 60. And it is a significant organizational and emotional risk to my family and me!

We need information on this issue that will help us plan for this stage of our lives. We want to do the right thing! We want to 'age successfully'.

Yours truly,

Signature

PS.
