NAHC Offers Complementary Financial Education and Advice from Edelman Financial Services
April 14, 2015 08:34 AM
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is offering complementary financial education and advice through an exclusive video with Ric Edelman, CEO and Chairman of Edelman Financial Services LLC. In the video, Edelman—an acclaimed financial advisor, bestselling author and award-winning radio talk-show host—answers common questions related to the topic of Financial Planning and Investments.
Edelman educates his audience about how to define their financial goals and dreams. He argues that it is necessary to identify a dream and turn it into a specific goal in order to achieve it. Edelman also provides advice about: where to best invest long-term savings; how to best build cash reserves by selecting the right kind of account; and how to protect against money’s “silent killer,” inflation. Edelman provides an example helps a man who recently downsized his home invest the extra cash for retirement.
The video addresses the reality that not all financial advisors serve their clients’ best interests. In order to educate NAHC members about what types of financial advisors to seek out and what types to avoid, Edelman explains the different types of advisors and how they are paid. Finally, Edelman explains what to do when the market crashes by answering a caller’s question about whether to cash in or wait it out.

Edelman has distinguished himself among financial advisors for his focus on helping people, rather than merely profits. “Ric is an exception because his focus is on service, with an eye more on Main Street than on Wall Street,” NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris stated last year in a CARING Magazine interview with Edelman. “Ric has used his tremendous success to help others succeed, too.” Halamandaris praised Edelman’s service including his “particular affinity for nurses, especially home care and hospice nurses.”
“It’s difficult to be a nurse, especially a nurse who works in hospice or home care,” Edelman said during the interview with Halamandaris. “They are dealing with chronic illness and people who are near the end of life. All this is a natural part of the aging process, but the level of care that is required—not just the physical support but also the emotional support that they must offer—can be extraordinarily draining for nurses. It should, therefore, be no surprise for us to learn about nurses who give their all to their patients, and have nothing left for themselves.”
