🌟We want to congratulate Carrie Jarmer for successfully obtaining her Certification for Long-Term Care (CLTC) designation!🌟 The CLTC designation is primarily focused on the tools of providing care over a prolonged period of time. A professional with a CLTC designation has acquired the critical tools necessary to discuss the subject of longevity and its acute consequences on a client’s family – financially, physically and emotionally – years down the road. The best way to protect families from the potential devastation of long-term care is not to sell a product, but rather, offer advice that leads to a plan to mitigate those consequences. Carrie always strives to further her education within the field allowing her to expand her knowledge to provide better advice and service to clients! 💼🤝🏻
