(Stroudsburg) Yvonne L. Reitemeyer of Frailey Insurance and Financial Services, has earned a professional certification in the field of long-term care, Certified in Long Term Care (CLTC). The program is independent of the insurance industry and focuses on providing financial professionals the tools they need to meet their client’s long-term care needs.

All graduates complete a rigorous multidisciplinary course that focuses on the profession of long-term care planning. This program is recognized by state regulators, through the granting of continuing education credits, as having provided essential information necessary to the appropriate sale of long-term care insurance.

“Frailey Insurance and Financial Services is very active in our community. We treat our neighbors like family and strive to meet their many needs,” Reitemeyer said. “Many of our members have experienced the devastating effects chronic illness and worse, loss of a loved one, has had on their families. Few of these families can afford these costs. Long-term care insurance may be the solution. I am committed to provide the information members need to make the right decisions.”

Reitemeyer continues to say, “Long-term care insurance is a complex product. It offers many forms of protection and pricing structures. As a CLTC professional, I can help by knowing the right questions to ask. My goal, like all professionals, is to help them solve their needs.”
