As an insurance producer specializing in long term care, Julie has seen the challenges that impact the lives of many seniors as their health needs change. It can be a formidable task for any family member – even those who have the time – to help their parents select the right caregivers, assisted living facility or skilled nursing facility. Julie has personal experience with helping her mother who struggled with Alzheimer’s disease. Julie recognized the enormous need to help individuals that are alone or have children that live out of state and to help family members go through this daunting task more efficiently and with kindness and dignity for their parents.
At the same time of her mother’s illness, Julie also faced a personal challenge with her husband’s shocking diagnosis of leukemia and lymphoma. She knows all too well that doctors’ words fly into oblivion and you hear nothing. Trying to take control of your own emotions and maintaining focus is challenging enough. After the shock wore off, Julie recognized the need to be involved and to have a voice in her husband’s medical situation. She learned how to research cancer, clinical trials and options for her husband. Since that time, Julie has been fiercely supportive of friends, family and clients and helped them to understand their options and help clarify the decision process.
