(OPEN):
AS HAWAII'S POPULATION AGES, THE COST OF CARING FOR THE GROWING NUMBER OF RESIDENTS WITH AGE-RELATED DISABILITIES IS ALSO EXPECTED TO RISE.  AND, ACCORDING TO A-A-R-P STATE-PRESIDENT, STUART HO, NOT ENOUGH IS BEING DONE TO PREPARE HAWAII FOR THE COSTS OF ITS AGING SOCIETY...

(HO):
"FAILING TO PLAN FOR THE COST OF YOUR LONG-TERM CARE CAN DESTROY A LIFETIME OF SAVINGS--JUST AS SURELY AS A HOUSE-FIRE IN AN UNINSURED HOME.  THE PROBLEM IN HAWAII IS THAT TOO MANY OF US--AND THAT INCLUDES MOST OF OUR YOUNGER PEOPLE--DON'T SEE LONG-TERM CARE AS A SERIOUS RISK.  AS A CONSEQUENCE, WE'RE UNPREPARED TO DEAL WITH ITS COSTS--WHEN THE TIME COMES.
"
