Judy Smith
Spacer Judy has been an agent for over 9 years and is experienced in Medicare supplements, long term care and prescription drug plans.

Her real passion, however, is for the benefits provided through a long-term care plan. She has personally experienced the devastating effects of long-term care, seeing both her in-laws and her parents spend everything they worked so hard for all of their lives in order to pay for care in a nursing facility.

Judy will sit down with you and explain the options you have available in order to protect your assets and to stay independent should you need extended care, either in a nursing facility, an assisted living facility or, preferably, to receive that care at home.
