Long Term Care Insurance
Long-term, or extended care insurance, is an affordable alternative to paying for care expenses from personal assets over a prolonged period of time.
Many aging individuals worry about burdening family members with the time and expense of long-term care; having an insurance plan in place can help eliminate the burden. Long-term care services may include assistance with activities of daily living, home health care, respite care, hospice care, adult day care, care in a nursing home, or care in an assisted living facility.
Extended care plans provide peace of mind that the well being of your loved ones will be protected. There can be severe emotional, physical, and financial consequences when there is no plan in place and family members are faced with the ongoing care of their loved one. Long Term Care Insurance mitigates those severe consequences and puts a plan in place to eliminate the fear, stress, and burden that would otherwise permeate an already difficult situation.
Long-term care is different from traditional medical care in that it helps one live as he or she is now and may not help to improve or correct medical problems. 180,000 Americans receive $6 billion in benefits annually from their long-term care insurance policies. 83% of those who make claims agree that having long-term care insurance in place made it easier to have their needs met.
