What Is Long Term Care Insurance?

Did you know 1 in every 2 people will need Long Term Care during their life.  Many people believe that Medicare pays for it. Unfortunately, it does not.  The average cost of a nursing home in the United States is over $7000 a day. That is almost $90,000 a year. That can eat up your life’s savings rapidly. In order to protect your nest egg and keep the burden of care limited to family members it’s important to plan ahead for unexpected health issues that can arise.

New and improved  Long Term Care strategies are available to help offset your cost and keep caretakers from the stress of caring for a loved one. 

We are living longer than ever. That is the GOOD news and the not so GOOD news. With longevity comes a higher incidence of need for help with activities of daily living.
