Does your financial plan address potential long-term care concerns and needs?
Put our knowledge on your side
People today are living longer and a larger number of people will need long-term care sometime in their life. The risk is very real, and, unfortunately, much more likely than most people perceive. Does your financial strategy account for potential long-term care needs? This may be the time to re-evaluate your situation.
Addressing Long Term Care Workshop will go into greater depth on these topics:

Campus Club took part in an exceptional tour of the Wings of the North Museum, thanks to Bob and Judy Jasperson.
Wings of the North is home to one of the largest air displays in Minnesota the AirExpo that is held in July. We got up close and personal with Pat Harker's gorgeous B-25J Mitchell "Lady Luck", John Borme's 42 PT-17 Stearman trainer, and we tooted the horn of a 1942 army jeep.

We have a tradition of remembering everyone in our campus community who has passed away in the past year with an annual All Saints service. We will mark All Saints Day next Sunday, November 6, at 9:30 in the Care Center Chapel and at 10:30 at the Meadow Woods Chapel.
There may have been a resident who saw you in a way no one else has seen you, who touched your heart, or who was like a grandmother to you. There may have been one who put you in touch with your own mortality. At least one made you laugh.
If you knew or worked with any of our residents who have passed away since last year's All Saints service, I ask that you will hold their memory close to you this week in whatever way you meditate or pray.
One of the blessings of our Ebenezer community is that we honor the religious and spiritual lives of all our residents and staff. We trust in our bones that each person has dignity and is worthy of the best we can offer. Those who have placed their lives or the lives of their loved ones in our care have blessed us with tremendous trust and responsibility. They've invited us into their deepest pain and greatest joy.
I hope you had a great Halloween with costumes, treats, parties, and fun. I now invite you this week to honor the memory of those close to us who have faithfully lived and died, especially those who have placed themselves in your care.
Here's a verse from a song we'll sing next Sunday:
And when the strife is fierce, the conflict long,
steals on the ear the distant triumph song,
and hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.
Blessings to you, and peace.
