What Is Long Term Care Insurance?
Imagine spending the equivalent of your annual income just on health care!
According to Genworth Financial, the median annual cost of care for a private room in a nursing center is $100,375 while the median annual cost for care for a private room in an assisted living facility is $48,000! Now factor in inflation and those numbers are only going to increase with time. In 10, 20 or 30 years, will you be able to afford the care you and or your loved one will need?
This kind of care is different from medical care, because it generally helps you to live as you live now instead of improving or correcting medical problems. People often think of long-term care as strictly nursing home care. Long-term care services include help with activities of daily living, home care, respite care, hospice care or adult day care. This care maybe given in your own home, an adult day care facility, assisted living facility, nursing home or hospice facility.
