From talking with our clients the common themes to getting back on track we've found are
- Connect with a good doctor
- Get up-to-date information
- Find services that can speak your language
- Access social workers or counsellors from the health clinics
- Get organised and get your life insurance in place and get on living
So where do we at unUsualrisks.com.au fit in?
We help people with well-managed HIV or diabetes get their life insurance sorted in a discrete and confidential way. (We also help medical professionals and emergency workers who are at risk of sharps injuries and NSI's too so we know our stuff).
All our clients are living interesting and vibrant lives and life insurance is just a normal part of living a bigger life. When you've started treatments and your viral load is heading towards undetectable, we're here to help you get your life insurance organised if that's something you want in your life.
For us, it's about helping people return to normal and get on with living by protecting you and your future financially.
If you run a business, have a family (or maybe you're about to start one) or perhaps you have someone significant by your side, we're here to help with conversations about what's possible and to walk you through that next financial step.
