Heart Disease and Planning for the Future

April 9, 2019

Now that spring has finally arrived, it’s a great time to get outdoors and get active. Regular physical activity - walking, running, biking - is a key component to good health. Exercise is good for your body and especially for your heart-it can help prevent heart disease, which impacts 44 million women in the United States each year. In fact, a woman dies from heart disease every 80 seconds. And according to research, the vast majority of those women don’t know that heart disease is their number one cause of death.

It gets worse: Hispanic women are afflicted with cardiovascular disease an average of 10 years before Caucasian women. 21,000 Hispanic and 48,000 African American women die each year from heart disease.

Those are startling - and frightening - statistics. They also serve as a reminder of how important it is to be prepared. Do you have the right amount of life insurance to protect your family? What about long-term care insurance? 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease, so waiting until the “worst case” happens often leaves your loved ones trying to balance emotions with care decisions.

The best plan is to have one! Your Valeri Insurance team will meet with you to plan for the future. We are here to help you review all your options, consider short- and long-term needs and build a customized insurance portfolio. Contact Valeri today to schedule an appointment with one of our agents; we can help ensure your and your family’s security.

For more information on heart disease in women - and how to prevent it - please visit the American Heart Association’s website, www.goredforwomen.org. Go Red for Women is the AHA’s national campaign to prevent heart disease. And be sure to read the blog from our friends at West Bend Insurance on this important topic

With the myriad of responsibilities that business owners deal with, sometimes items like certificates of insurance fall lower down on the priority list.
