“My name is Marielle. I'm 48 years old, mother of 3 beautiful grown children, and I've been working as a manager in the food industry for the past 25 years.

My mother died from Alzheimer's a few months ago. It was very hard to see her health deteriorate so quickly and to see her become so vulnerable. My sister and I made sure we were with her until the end. It was very difficult emotionally and financially as well, we wanted the very best for her: a good place where she would be in good hands, somewhere where she could spend her last days with dignity.

At the time, the long-term care insurance didn't exist for my parents. I don't want to bring such a burden to my family if this were to happen to me, so I chose to protect myself, well, to protect them. I got insured.”
