  I was looking for information on long-term care insurance and found myself on the National Institute of Health’s website.  (I need a life!) There I came across a study showing who gets denied long-term care insurance and why.   A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining and wants it back the ...

After his dad had a stroke, my friend Joey and his mom were shocked to realize that Medicare only pays the first 100 days of nursing home care.  Shock turned to heartbreak when it was clear his dad would require nursing home care far beyond 100 days.  Then heartbreak turned to horror when they realized how ...

When Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection was being sued, government officials were relieved if environmental lawyer Jim Alves weighed in on their side.  But if he were on the opposing side, they knew they’d better bring their A-game to the court room.  There was no doubt.  He was a worthy opponent. While continuing his environmental ... [Read more...] The post Boomer Reinvention: From Lawyer to Mental Health Counselor appeared first ...

As I watched my dad heroically fight cancer the last 10 years of his life, I marveled at his high spirits and gusto for life.   His body slowly failed, but his spirit hung amazingly tough.  Not one for introspection, when I asked how he did it, he’d just say, “Sugar, old age isn’t for sissies.”  My ...

Revised: The quiz was modified and condensed to correct a flaw in its scoring technique.  Greetings, Boomer.  Rumor has it that 70% of us will need long-term care.  That rumor, bandied about in official-looking reports, never seems to be accompanied by the original evidence-based study describing how the result was obtained.   You can breathe (a little) ...

Greetings, Boomer.  Rumor has it that 70% of us will need long-term care.  That rumor, bandied about in official-looking reports, never seems to be accompanied by the original evidence-based study describing how the result was obtained.   You can breathe (a little) easy.   The actual science,1 which is discussed in plain terms here, shows that, on average, 48% of ...

  Boomer, before you buy long-term care insurance, consider the case of Mary Jo Klimenko. I came across her story in Kaiser Health News. It nearly set my hair on fire. She bought a long-term care policy 20 years ago.  Like life insurance, the younger you are when you buy, the cheaper the policy is ...

Boomer, today’s book review is about purpose and “calling.”  As noted in this book, and exemplified by my friend Susan, our purpose and calling can change throughout our lives.  And it can have a profound impact on our lives.  Proceed with caution… My friend Susan’s purpose and calling was to build a successful business.  After ...

My friend Susan was gorgeous, smart, and widowed.  She was also wealthy from a very successful business she’d built from scratch.    (I was only moderately jealous.) Through the years, she’d dated a steady stream of men who were just like her:  gorgeous, smart, and successful.  When she invited me to lunch because she had “big news,” ...
