December 19, 2012, Welcome    to this week's newsletter. We are trying a new format, please let us know your suggestions or comments.  Long term care insurance is the focus today, but we are also featuring reviews of 2 nice towns for retirement,  plus the latest news on how the fiscal cliff could affect your social security and Medicare.
Unlike almost all other types of insurance, the decision to buy long term care insurance is not clear cut. There are many reasons to buy it, and just as many not too.  Read this article to find out if it might be a smart decision for you - or not.
Madison GA
Madison's residents tend to rave about its charm, restaurants, antebellum homes, nice downtown, and proximity to Lake Oconee and Athens. Named "The Prettiest Small Town in America", locals call it the town "Sherman refused to burn".
As our fine feathered friends in Washington struggle to keep us from falling off the fiscal cliff, "solutions" for fixing Medicare and Social Security are being tossed around.  Here's an update, plus the skinny on "cars for baby boomers".
Lafayette, LA
The "Cajun Capital City" has a warm winter climate, a high per capita ratio of restaurants, a major university (University of Louisiana at Lafayette), Creole and Cajun culture, and plenty of outdoor activities.
If you like this newsletter please forward it to a friend.  We also offer a Daily Digest (links to everything new), plus New Active Adult Communities (2 versions of recently added 55+ communities: East & West).
