with Dina DiRoma

Calendar Feb 8, 2023

True Story: My mother was diagnosed with Covid-19 so bad that her oxygen level was literally 58%. We took her by ambulance to the Hospital. She was in Intensive Care for 2-1/2 weeks and Hospitalized for another 2-1/2. While she was there, we had to take in her mail, water her plants, make sure the pool was at the correct level because it was summer and she had a slow leak, pay her bills - basically handle all of her affairs. Before her hospital release my siblings and I realized that she is going to need a nurse because she was so weak she couldn’t be left alone. All of us work, have children, pets and homes of our own to maintain. But we knew we couldn’t leave her alone. Trying to find a nurse at that time was impossible! Bear in mind that all 4 siblings are self employed - there is no family leave, vacation days or sick pay here. If we’re not on the job, the business doesn’t run, period! What did we do? As if by some miracle - we found out that my mother had a Benefit Plan that covered all of this. Because of that we were able to hire a Private Nurse and take turns cooking her healthy meals and spending time with her (after work). It was because of this incident and her policy that I literally got my license so that I could advocate for these products. Having the right protection plan in place for the unexpected can make all the difference. Topics to be discussed: Accident/Sickness/Disability/Critical Illness/Cancer and Life Insurance Policies
