What is long term care?
An injury, illness or the effects of aging could result in someone becoming unable to provide for their own personal care. The care
needed may be temporary or permanent and could involve skilled nursing, rehabilitative or custodial care. Assistance with the activities of daily living is considered
custodial care. The possible need for long term care increases with advancing age, but the need could occur at any age. The cost for receiving long term care can be very
expensive. Most health insurance plans and Medicare do not cover long term care costs.
Why purchase Long Term Care insurance?
A sound financial plan should include consideration of potential long term care needs. Provided premiums are affordable,
one should consider purchasing Long Term Care insurance to help protect assets and income, to remain independent of support from others and maintain freedom to choose the quality
of care desired.
