Living Happier While Living Longer

We Extend The Quality Of Your Life

It was the famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright who said, “The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes.” Jim Better, CEO of Essential Plans of Insurance, couldn’t agree more! Our expertise will prolong your quality of life by relieving your family from the burden of caring for you and save your money for what it was intended: not nursing care.

  • Stay Home
  • Move in with family
  • Residential Care
  • Assisted Living
  • Nursing Home

For most of us, the process of enjoying life will inevitably become more challenging. Seventy percent of us will need help with our activities of daily living, hopefully, in our own home. Sometimes living with family. For others, in an assisted living community. Regardless, planning to protect you & your children is why you should call Essential Plans. Our expertise and experience with long term care funding will get you the right coverage at an affordable price.

Getting The Right Coverage Starts With Our More Thorough Evaluation Process.



Getting the right amount of coverage is just as important as getting the lowest cost policy from the best insurance carrier. At Essential Plans Insurance, we’ll recommend the right policy at the lowest price, based on your specific needs. That’s why our evaluation process takes into consideration your:

  • Age

  • Health

  • Family Situation

  • Household Financial Situation (including income, assets & liabilities)

  • Family Medical History

  • And Other Factors

These are the issues that impact our coverage and policy recommendations to ensure you have no less and no more insurance than you really need.

Remember too that all of your personal information is encrypted, is kept confidential, and is never shared with any outside person or business, other than the information required to process an actual LTC application with a recommended insurance provider. Your data will never be sold.


of us will need help with things like dressing, bathing, meal preparation and remembering. Family members often help out but that gets real old real fast. The experience can literally tear families apart.

The idea is to be smart about it:
Protect your money, avoid family turmoil, and be able to make choices for yourself.

The Time to Prepare is NOW!
