The Certified in Long-Term Care, (CLTC) designation was founded by attorney Harley Gordon and a team of professionals in the field of aging who understood the consequences not having a plan would have on every retirement. The program is universally recognized by carriers in the business of providing long-term care solutions, as well as financial services firms who understand how not having a plan will disrupt every attempt to create a sense of financial viability moving into the future.
