Home Care Secure
Home — it’s where you want to be.
If you’re like most, you want to live in your own home for the rest of your life.
Nearly 2/3 of Americans over the age of 65 will need help at some point to live at home. The costs can be significant – nearly $50,000 on average* – which Medicare does not pay for.
And if this help is not well planned or delivered, the risk of falls and injury can increase, which can result in a move from a cherished home to a nursing home.
That’s why our membership is designed to give you insurance coverage AND a plan.
You Need a Plan — We’re Here to Help
Your membership comes with yearly access to Total Well-Being,* a comprehensive assessment that scores your overall well-being in the areas of Life, Health and Money. Based on your results, we’ll give you valuable insights and suggestions to make improvements. We’ll remind you to check in on yourself every year so you can stay on track for a healthy, happy future.
