2. Member Achievements
The FMPR Texas chapter would like to recognize member Anna Garrett who competed in the Alzheimers Run in Dallas last Saturday.
Alzheimers is a big issue with many of our members. The cosmetics industry is made up primarily of women, who tend to be much more likely to be caregivers. Anna Garrett has first hand experience with her own mother needing Long Term Care. Anna had to close her salon for six months to help her mom.
Because Texas ranks last in the country for state assistance, (according to a long term care insurance broker in Texas) there is a need for private care options, including insurance. The state of Texas has a population of about 28,000,000 people which include many small business owner like me who offer make-up artist services in high-end Assisted Living facilities. More people have moved from the higher liberal states like NY and CA to Texas where taxes are low and labor is cheap. This large number of people make Texas one of the largest users of Long Term Care services and the greatest need of Long Term Care Insurance in Texas. This includes care in Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities and Home Health Care. The US Census data shows, Texas has around 2.8 million people 65 years and up. This high number of seniors in the Lone Star State will increasingly need and use Long Term Care putting stress on families as well as public and private finances. In 2014 the total Long Term Care expenses in Texas was $15.2 billion.
As a make-up artist in Texas I’ve worked with all sorts of people, but my favorite is to work with seniors in Assisted Living facilities. The above LTC Partnership program gives people incentive to buy the insurance. Once the person has the insurance if they need to go to an Assisted Living facility little things like make-up can be expensive. Some LTC policies will may for those types of services.
