Long Term Care Planning

Actively deciding on a plan for your own care is ultimately a gift you give to the loved ones who outlive you.

We are considering moving into an all-inclusive retirement community and want expert financial advice with this big decision. 

Benefits of Planning for Long-term Care

Planning for long-term care provides you and your loved ones many benefits:

  • Where to live and who will help
  • Confidence in the financial situation
  • Ensuring dignity and independence

Long-Term care Planning

How we answer these five questions will, to a great extent, determine how we are remembered.

  1. Who might be my caregiver?  
  2. Where do I want to receive care?
  3. How can I finance and coordinate my care?
  4. What type and amount of care could I need?
  5. When is it likely to happen? 

Why you need a plan for Long-Term care?

My LTC story, Stacey Frank

Why LTC is essential?

Long-term care is an essential element of your overall financial plan because the likelihood of needing care to perform normal daily activities – like eating, dressing, bathing – is high. In fact, 70% of people 65 and older will someday need long-term care, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

What about Medicare? Medicare is not long-term care insurance. Medicare pays only for approved charges, only for skilled and rehabilitative care, only after three days and nights of hospitalization, and only for a maximum of 100 days per diagnosis. 

The Medicaid program will pay for required care only after your existing assets have been spent down to meet state and federal guidelines.
