Thrivent plans event on preparing for long-term care

Thrivent Financial is hosting a free event to help people prepare for the possibility of needing long-term care. The one-hour talk will be at noon or 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 15, at Life Church, 710 Jake Alexander Blvd. W.

It is presented by the Piedmont Regional Team with Thrivent Financial in Salisbury and will encourage attendees to learn more about long-term care and how they and their family can prepare for it — emotionally, physically and financially.

The event will address common questions such as: Where would you receive care? Who would provide it? How would you pay for it?

“Long-term care is not for you, it’s for your family” said Chris Fowler. “This event is designed to help people understand what all of their options are and to offer guidance and knowledge of the different avenues and total cost of long-term care and how to prepare.”

It is open to the public.  To register for this free event, call Thrivent Financial’s local office at 704-633-0722 or email chris.fowler@thrivent.com. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
