martie-salt-wftv-channel-9-aOrlando, FL – One Senior Place Greater Orlando will host Blindsided: The Realities of Aging, on Wednesday, December 7 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at its offices in Altamonte Springs. This educational seminar, designed to provide critical information on the costs associated with elder care and how to prepare for them, is FREE and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to call (321) 751-6771 and RSVP to the event to reserve seating.

Co-sponsored by LTC Advisors, headlining the event is Martie Salt, WFTV-Channel 9 news anchor, who will screen her highly informative, Emmy-nominated TV special, Blindsided: The Reality of Caring for Aging Parents. After the screening, she will take questions from the audience and discuss her personal journey as a caregiver.

During her TV special, Salt took an in-depth look at the high costs associated with taking care of elderly parents and why most people are not prepared for this inevitability. She also presented sobering information regarding how individuals cannot depend on Medicare or Medicaid to pay for long-term care services. While interviewing Central Florida elder care professionals, it was revealed that most people do not have the finances to carry them through their expected lifetimes.

This growing healthcare crisis will affect millions of Americans — both the elderly and children of aging parents — as the baby boomer generation continues to age. Preparing for the inevitable realities of aging and their associated costs are tantamount to creating financial stability and peace of mind. The goal of this seminar is to educate and inform. Other expert presenters will include an elder law attorney, long term care planning specialist, geriatric care manager, and social worker.
