What is Long Term Care?
Care can be defined simply as care provided by another party for
the benefit of someone who is unable to care for themselves. The
kind of help you need if you are unable to care for yourself because
of aging, an illness, or a disability whether temporary or permanent.
It can range from help with daily activities at home, such as bathing and dressing, to skilled nursing care in a nursing home. Long Term care is provided by home care agencies, senior centers, adult day centers, traditional nursing homes, and family members.
Protecting Retirement Income
Even in these challenging economic times many people are looking to retire in the next few years and maintain their current lifestyle which makes this an opportune time to consider the value of long term care planning so you can feel safe and secure knowing you have some control in the future financially.
Most people plan on their retirement money to provide the income to maintain their lifestyle. It takes a $2 million investment portfolio to provide $100,000 if it has a 5% rate of return. The average cost for nursing home is over $75,000, which leaves $25,000. How much will you (and spouse) need to cover both long term care and living expenses (lifestyle).
