Do I Need Long-Term Care Insurance?
Long-term care insurance plans provide medical care and other services to patients who require care in their own home or in a long-term care facility. Because people are living longer, they are requiring expensive assistance in their later years. Long-term healthcare services can be provided in your home, in an adult day care, in an assisted living facility or in a nursing facility. Planning for the emotional and financial burden that results when you require assistance is an essential component of retirement planning. Some people can pay the bill out of pocket while others qualify for Medicaid (welfare), but most of us will fall somewhere in the middle.
We have worked hard all our lives – planning for the future will provide you with the stress-free, rewarding later years you deserve.
