We’ve been there.

Some of us have watched loved ones become caregivers. Some of us have become caregivers of loved ones. We have heard stories from clients who have cared for loved ones, and don’t want to place that burden on their families. At BuddyIns, we understand on a personal level that every situation is unique when it comes to planning for extended care.

Our Impact

"Tobe has been outstanding to work with in her knowledge and professionalism. She makes a very complicated topic understandable and took the time to walk me through each part of the process. She was very prompt in getting back to me and made sure that no question went unanswered."

Georgene Q., TX

"My specialist reviewed my current LTC policy and helped to me to see that I have a good one. Not once did she try to sell me anything. That speaks volumes about her integrity as a long term care insurance advisor! I will definitely be recommending Honey to anyone wanting to open a long term care policy."


"Linda is very wise and detail-oriented, which I appreciate. She was very thorough and helped explain things to me in laymen’s terms. I just felt so much better after talking to her. She was very patient with all my many questions. I even called her again another day with more questions and she took my call after working hours. I feel more confident in my information gathering and decision."

Diane S.

"Honey really cares about getting clients the best possible policy for them. Her friendliness and willingness to answer my many questions made this process easy. Something I have needed to do for quite some time turned out to be easy. I also feel confident that if I need Honey in the future she will be there for me."

Robin, U., OH

"Just wanted to let you know how impressed I continue to be with the outstanding service Diane Stoddart has provided me. Her responsiveness is excellent; her answers to my questions are always thorough and complete; and she presents the topics with clarity for easy understanding. 10/10 for great service!"

Susan L., CA


"Rhonda was very helpful, and gave me plenty to think about. She was organized in her presentation. And she explained things very simply."

Linda B, NC

"Tobe provided a lot of great information. I am glad you told us about the international coverage aspects for US long term care policies."

Anonymous, OR

"Honey took many hours of her time holding our hands and supporting us on this journey of purchasing long term care that best fit our needs. It provided reassurance and peace of mind whenever I think about the future and when we are getting old. That was really meaningful to me."

Yan J., MD

"Rhonda is amazing and really helped me understand this process from start to finish, seamlessly."

Gina G., IL

"My specialist is so polite and helpful. She asked the necessary questions and then spent time researching what type of policy and what company would work best for me. We used phone conversations, email, and Zoom meetings; all of which were helpful. She explained each step in the process. As in all businesses insurance has their own language and she made sure I understood all vocabulary and aspects of my policy. I feel that she found a policy that will help keep me out of a traditional nursing home (which is a concern of mine). Already, knowing I have this policy in place is giving me peace of mind."

Robin, U., OH

"My LTC discussion with Renee in one word was superb. She listened to my needs, finances and is exploring plans that might be available to me for my limited budget. I am very thankful to her and would highly recommend Renee to anyone who would like to explore LTC."

Linda M., NY

"Linda is extremely knowledgeable, experienced in this field, and so very patient with my lack of computer skills. I look forward to working with Linda to resolve my questions and get my long term plans finalized. As a single woman crossing into the world of aging, I now feel like I have someone who truly understands my concerns. Thank you again for doing what you do."

Rose W., VA

Phyllis, you may remember that you were very helpful and generous to me when I was contemplating buying an insurance product with an inflation-protected long term care benefit. I just wanted to let you know that I am now the owner of the policy we discussed - it's very expensive but you helped me understand why it is well worth the money.
