The goal of LTCAM is to make the public more aware of the need for responsible long-term care (LTC) planning. It is nationally sponsored by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.
I want to thank The Forum at Memorial Woods and my contact at The Forum, Keri Shaw, in particular, for organizing and generously underwriting the 2010 LTCAM luncheon there on November 4, 2010. The luncheon was filled to capacity. I was told that people were turned away. Houston City Council Member Melissa Noriega and her assistant, Toya Ramirez, came from City Hall to present Mayor Parker’s proclamation that November 2010 is LTCAM in Houston. I gave a talk at the luncheon called “LTC Current Events.”
On November 16, 2010, a group of 10 of us, representing Houston LTCAM sponsors The Forum at Memorial Woods, Senior Resource Guide, The Houston Area Continuity of Care, and the Houston Association of Health Underwriters, went before Houston City Council to publicly accept the 2010 LTCAM proclamation from Mayor Annise Parker.
It’s been an exciting month!
