Preparing for Long-Term Care

While a frank and informed discussion about present and future medical and personal needs can secure the most suitable type of long-term care at the right time, many people find the topic discomforting. Others are in outright denial about the possibility of requiring long-term care. While the aging population, longer life spans, rising health care costs, and an ever-increasing strain on government services ought to compel all those over the age of 40 to prepare for the possibility of long-term care, that’s not the case today. Most Americans have not seriously considered or planned for the emotional and financial consequences of aging. Many are not even familiar with the care options available, and most, when the time comes, will be shocked by the associated costs.
