I was very unfamiliar with the entire topic of long-term care insurance. Don presented the information in an easy-to-understand way, allowing me to make an informed decision tailored to my specific needs. Don is very knowledgeable and professional, and happily answered my multitude of questions. Don is not a high-pressure person– he realizes this is a decision that cannot and should not be made quickly. I would highly recommend Don to anyone who is considering purchasing long-term care insurance.
Long-term care insurance coverage can be a difficult and complicated decision to make. I did my own research, but still wasn’t sure what policy or benefits were best for my wife and me. Don Strickler was a BIG help. He was patient with my questions and knowledgeable with the answers. I don’t know what will happen to my wife and me 20, 30 or more years from now. But Don Strickler helped us choose a long-term care insurance policy that we are very comfortable with. Thank you, Don.

As we began our research into long-term care insurance, we were referred to Don Strickler through the American Association of Long-Term Care Insurance. We are so happy that we were connected with Don. He took the time to listen to our needs; presented several options; and walked us through the features, benefits and differences among them all. Throughout the process, he was always very responsive to our questions and truly helped guide us to make the best decision for our needs. At no time, did we feel that he was trying to “sell” us a specific policy. It was a very collaborative process and we strongly recommend Don to anyone interested in purchasing long-term care insurance.

Jamey and I would like to thank you for your guidance and support as we sorted through the different options for our long term care policy. We were very appreciative of your patience and clarity as you helped us understand the many kinds of policies available, the range of care and benefits, and the price-structures that apply to the different products.We especially appreciated your advocacy for us when our chosen provider decided to alter the original terms of our policy after a less than ideal result in one of my husband’s medical tests. Your support for us helped us reach an acceptable compromise that kept us and our provider feeling good about our final policy. We are very relieved to know that we have a great policy that will support us when we need it but most importantly, keep our family free from the pressures of difficult medical and financial decisions during our final years.Again, we are grateful for your kind and expert guidance through this process. Thank you for your excellent work on our behalf!

I was purchasing LTC insurance for my mother and found it to be an impossible maze until I got in touch with Don. He was extremely helpful in answering all of our questions, taking the time to understand what we needed, and providing us with several good options to work with. We likely would never have figured out to get the type of coverage we did — and we certainly would not have found as good a deal on it — without his assistance. Plus, he was always friendly and pleasant to talk to. Thanks, Don! We mean it — thanks again!
Don provided superior client-centric service without any pressure. He provided information in a clear fashion and was always available to respond to questions from application to processing to finalization of the contract. In addition, Don went above and beyond to ensure us that anytime after the insurance is in effect to not hesitate to contact him for assistance. An offer that was sincere and that I am confident he will stand behind. In my experience, I have never had the responsiveness and quality of customer service in the insurance domain that we received from Don. I fully recommend Don without any reservations.

After speaking with several long term care insurance agencies, I found Don Strickler’s knowledge and willingness to explain the various components involved with long term care to be quite refreshing. After speaking with him a couple of times I felt that I gained a complete understanding of the policy features and what was best for me. Don listened to my questions and concerns and addressed them in a way that was simple to understand. I never felt the high pressure that I experienced with other agencies. If you want to see whether or not long term care insurance is right for you, I’d highly recommend that you speak with Don Strickler before making any decisions.
We were very skeptical about Long Term Care Insurance when we started this process of exploration. When we found Don and his agency, we found him to be not only very knowledgeable but he was also very patient with us. He worked with us to tailor the coverage that was best for us and while we were very skeptical at first, we came to trust Don and we are pleased and comfortable with the decision we made in terms of taking his recommendation. We found Don to be the ultimate professional as he is not “fee driven” but very relationship oriented. We would highly recommend Don as an agent and guide for choosing the appropriate Long Term Care coverage plan.

I had read and listened to many financial experts on the benefits of LTC Insurance and felt it was something that I should consider not only for my own sake but for the sake of my children. I wanted to continue to have a loving relationship with them but I did not want to become a burden and I felt that this insurance will help me achieve this, especially the ability to have care in my home from an outside source. The two issues I faced in making this decision were 1) How much coverage do I really need to purchase, and even more importantly, 2) Who can I really trust to give me that information. That was my biggest concern and that is where the blessing comes in – I, thru the American Associaton of Long Term Care Insurance was put in touch with Don Strickler. The moment I spoke with him and he was able to answer all of my questions and was able to provide me with a tremendous amount of information addressing all of my concerns, I knew I had found someone who was knowledgeable and, I felt, I could trust. He recommended very highly rated insurance companies and made the comparison process of choosing between benefits, costs and companies a very simple to understand process. He never once applied pressure to purchase and was always very patient and professional. I would highly recommend Don to anyone who is looking to purchase LTC Insurance, especially if you are like me and hesitant about dealing with “a salesperson” – he is not that – he is a LTC Insurance professional who is willing to share his knowledge and experience with you.
After placing my mother in-law in an assisted living facility recently, my wife and I quickly learned how expensive this process was going be and it became obvious to us that we needed to do something to protect our assets from these possible future costs when we may need long term care. I was referred to Don by the American Association for Long Term Care and he initially gave me an array of quotes from various insurance companies so that I could get an idea for the costs that would be involved with these policies and he warned me that this was going to be a process that we would have to work through to get to a policy that would fit both our needs and our budget. After getting these initial quotes, I found that long term care insurance is like a buffet table and you would have to pick and choose the variables that you want, to make up your policy – elimination period, benefit period, benefit amount per month, inflation protection, shared care, etc…, each of which of course, had its own effect on the cost of the policy. Needless to say, my head was spinning and I did not have the information to make an educated decision, and this is a big decision because you will be paying for this for the rest of your life. So to gather information, I decided to talk to more than one agent, along with searching the internet. I decided I would talk to a representative from each of the Mutuals – Mass Mutual, Northwestern Mutual and Mutual of Omaha. In the end, Don earned my business because I found him to be the best resource – he has an in depth knowledge of the long term insurance industry (statistics behind the various variables, products offered by each of the different insurance companies, differences between the products, etc…) and he answered each my questions in a clear, straight forward manner that any layman could understand, and he never once pressured me in any way to make a sale. I appreciate Don’s efforts in getting my wife and I into a policy that I think we will be extremely happy with in the future.
