GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - New research from Home Instead Senior Care reveals only one-in-eight seniors have made plans for long-term care.

Experts say most seniors have grand plans for retirement but have given little thought about how they will spend the time between retirement and the end of life.

Kathleen Stuck co-owns Home Instead Senior Care. Stuck appeared on KARE 11 at 11 to talk about a free program called “Compose Your Life Song.” It offers tips and resources to help families explore options for end-of-life care, finances, insurance, funeral planning and more.

Seniors express their personal wishes while still in good health, eliminating stress and uncertainty for surviving family members.

"Compose our Life Song” is a customized plan that reflects your loved one’s final wishes. Home Instead Senior Care network provides personalized care, support and education to help enhance the lives of aging adults and their caregivers.
