The U.S. House of Representatives put its stamp of approval on Long-Term Care Awareness Week, which will take place Nov. 4-10.

The House - with 27 votes - passed Concurrent House Resolution 133. The resolution supports the goals of the designated week, which began in 2001. The American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance established the week to raise awareness about the importance of long-term care planning by both consumers and financial professionals.

"As the number of aging Americans increase, long-term care planning will become increasingly important for Americans and their families," said Rep. Charles Boustany, Jr., (R-LA), who co-sponsored the House resolution.
