Illness and long term care Illness and Long Term Care The market has its ups and downs, but nothing poses a greater risk to a family legacy than being unprepared for a long or serious illness. Good planning protects your assets and your well-being by making contingency plans for care needs to ensure that your assets are protected. Jamie explains, “when a family has experienced catastrophic illness, it is central to their concerns when they walk in the door. It’s the most fortunate families who can be most vulnerable - because they don’t immediately understand their vulnerability.” Dealing with serious illness is a difficult enough process without financial uncertainty. Risk Management Group wants to make sure that every family is as prepared as they can be for this challenge - so that after illness, life can again be comfortable and secure.
