About Us

We are real people who are passionate about long term care planning.

We’re BuddyIns, a community of experts who are on a mission to help people understand their long term care planning options.

Our Story

More than ten percent of the U.S. population is caring for a family member who is in the midst of a health crisis. It can be one of the most stressful life events and often leaves the caregiver and the person in need of care with an enormous financial burden.

We are real people who are passionate about long term care planning. Why? Because we’ve been there. Some of us have watched loved ones become caregivers. Some of us have become caregivers of loved ones. Some of us have heard stories from clients who have cared for loved ones, and don’t want to place that burden on their families. We understand that every situation is unique when it comes to planning for extended care.

We’ll answer your questions, help you weigh your options, and give you the information you need to make the best decision for you and your family.

A Note From BuddyIns CEO

As an actuary, I have seen the sobering long term care statistics. As an agent and someone who works with long term care specialists, I have seen the real-world scenarios play out in many families, including my own – with widely different outcomes.

The one thing that makes the biggest positive difference is having an actual long term care plan in place. That’s why I started BuddyIns. I wanted my friends and family to find some peace of mind through a personalized plan that helps them secure their financial futures.

I hope you’ll take a moment to view this short video that explains why I believe so passionately about having a plan, then consider what it would be like to activate your own long term care plan.

All of us at BuddyIns are here to cheer you on and make sure that you have the information and tools that you need to make the best decision for you and your family.

Welcome to BuddyIns!
