Jeff Cloer of the Wayah Insurance Group has been awarded a professional degree in the field of long-term care, Certified in Long- Term Care (CLTC). The program is independent of the insurance industry and focuses on providing insurance professionals the tools they need to meet their client’s long-term care needs.
“Our agency is very sensitive to the needs of our community” Cloer said. “Many of our clients have experienced the devastating effects chronic illness has on their families.”
“One of my responsibilities as an insurance professional is to help solve my client’s long term care needs. That includes explaining government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid and how they fit into a long-term care plan. My agency has made the commitment to provide the information clients need to make the right decisions.”
Cloer went on to explain what “CLTC” means. “The field of long term care is complex. It intersects with other professions such as financial planning, tax law, home care, government funding and elder law. My ability to serve the community depends on understanding what resources, such as housing and services, clients will need as they age and how they will be paid for.
The “CLTC” program provides a comprehensive education on those subjects.”
