Today’s women have more lifestyle options than ever before. We consistently assume many important roles – from caring for our loved ones (both young and old) to pursuing vibrant careers and lives. In fact, women are often heralded for their multi-tasking skills.
However, there is one task many of us put on the back burner, and that’s planning for our own futures. When it comes to our home, health and finances, we like to be in control. Understanding and arranging for long-term care is one of the smartest decisions we can make to stay in command of our future. But for too many women, particularly those of African American descent, there is still a great deal of important information we are not familiar with and don’t incorporate into critical planning for our futures.
