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.

Don Strickler has been assisting us in designing and purchasing our long term care insurance plan. Before we met Don, we had spoken to several other long term care agents. Don is by far the most knowledgeable, honest, efficient, and courteous agent. He was a pleasure to deal with, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who plans to purchase a long term health care policy. Don has a vast knowledge of all of the different policies and options. Because there are so many variables to consider when purchasing long term care insurance, it was so important to have an agent like Don who was able to sort through the details. We asked many questions, and he always answered them thoroughly, providing examples to clarify the issues. He listened very carefully to our specific needs, so that he guided us in designing a policy that fit our individual situation. Don is very honest; while he was careful not to under-insure our needs, he also made certain not to sell us more insurance than we would need for our particular circumstances. Don’s efficiency is unsurpassed, as he always returned our phone calls and emailed documents in a very timely manner. Throughout our conversations, Don was always patient and polite. In summary, we would refer any of our friends and family to Don Strickler, as he truly simplifies this rather complex process, providing the best information in the most efficient manner with the greatest integrity.

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.
I requested information on long-term healthcare insurance in response to an announcement from a university alumnae bulletin. Mr. Donald Strickler contacted me, offering his assistance. We began a constructive working relationship with the objective of selecting a plan for me and my wife which would provide a degree of coverage in our later years while still being reasonable within our financial constraints. Don provided information on various options from major carriers, a detailed cost analysis, and answered all our questions in timely fashion. Using statistical data and personal observations, Don was able to educate us on the best options while removing all anxiety in the process. With no pressure whatsoever, he helped us to identify and initiate our long term healthcare policies. I am extremely pleased that we are fortunate to have Don as our LTHC advisor.
My wife and I were very pleased to have Don Strickler walk us through the entire process of selecting and applying for LTC insurance. Don was very knowledgeable about the current market for LTC insurance and did a great job of explaining the pros and cons of different product options and the companies that provide them. After a few exchanges of e-mails and phone conversations with us to better understand our needs, he tracked down and compiled a menu of rate options and insurance providers. Don always accommodated our busy schedule and, when we finally selected our preferred option, he greatly simplified the paperwork for us. He followed through with the insurance company on our behalf through the end of the approval process.

Just a quick note to tell you how much we appreciate your assistance in helping us secure long-term care insurance. As you know we were unsuccessful in the past, due, I believe, to the lack of persistence on the part of another organization. You were a pleasure to work with, responsive, persistent and professional. Your friendly demeanor and expert knowledge base made it so much easier to make a decision about a complex issue. If we may ever act as a reference for you, I hope you will not hesitate to contact us.
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 wanted to take a moment to thank your for the wonderful customer service you provided when we purchased our LTC insurance. Although it’s not something that anyone enjoys thinking about or shopping for, after visiting with you and reviewing the quotes you provided us, we were more than surprised about how reasonable the costs were for both my husband and me.We very much appreciate your time in explaining all the options that needed to be considered when choosing a LTC plan and for providing the three companies for our review for comparison purposes. It truthfully makes it easier to sleep at night knowing that we won’t be a burden on our family. We couldn’t believe the total annual premium both of us is about what a one-month stay for one of us would cost at a LTC facility. Please send more business cards at your convenience; we’ve handed them out to our friends, co-workers and neighbors, with a “You gotta call Don before you buy LTC insurance; he’s the best”. Once they get around to the acceptance portion of a responsible decision, I have no doubt you’ll be hearing from more folks in Colorado. Thanks again and all the best in 2015!

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!
Bottom line is that Don Strickler is outstanding! Over the course of several months, Don helped me select the best bundle of LTC benefits and the best LTC provider. When that first provider unexpectedly put me in the worst health category, causing my premiums to be higher than I could afford, Don helped find an alternative provider that was affordable. During our many phone and email interactions, Don was super knowledgeable, patient and resourceful. In addition, he quickly responded to all my questions (and there were a lot of them), communicated very clearly and thoroughly, and made the application process painless. Personally, Don is a really nice guy who went the extra mile to be sure I understood everything and ended up with a good policy. If I were to do it all over again, I’d work with Don. I highly recommend him.
