Long-Term Care -Now is the time to prepare.

Pipe

The prospect of long-term care (LTC) can be both emotional and overwhelming. Few want to acknowledge the possibility of an unexpected event—such as an accident, illness or general decline in health—that would necessitate these services, and LTC insurance and correlating products can be expensive and confusing.

While the need for LTC services may seem improbable now, the lack of a strategy for covering associated expenses can have burdensome financial consequences. LTC planning can help you protect your family, your legacy and your future.

What is Long-Term Care?

According to LongTermCare.gov, long-term care is “a range of services and supports you may need to meet your personal care needs. Most long-term care is not medical care, but rather assistance with the basic personal tasks of everyday life, sometimes called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, using the toilet, transferring (to or from bed or chair), caring for incontinence and eating.” *
