So, if long term care insurance is something that makes sense to include in your financial strategy, where do you start?
· Depend on Family and Friends
· Buy Insurance
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
Other common LTC services and supports are assistance with everyday tasks,
§ Managing money
§ Taking medication
§ Preparing and cleaning up after meals
§ Shopping for groceries or clothes
§ Using the telephone or other communication devices
§ Caring for pets
§ Responding to emergency alerts such as fire alarms
For the elderly the need for long-term care is probably the most catastrophic unexpected event that could happen. This is because the need for long-term care typically removes any level of security an elderly person may have with the three major lifestyle concerns mentioned above.
With the need for long-term care the older person:
1. Loses independence
2. Has experienced a loss of good health
3. Uses up remaining assets and income
No other late-life event can be as devastating to the lifestyle the elderly are so concerned about maintaining. No wonder many elderly care recipients withdraw, become angry and suffer from severe depression.
If we are asking people from my seminar what his or her most important concerns are we would probably get a variety of different answers. But according to surveys frequently conducted among the elderly, the most likely answers we would receive would include the following three principal concerns.
1. Remaining independent in the home without intervention from others.
2. Maintaining good health and receiving adequate health care.
3. Having enough money for everyday needs and not outliving assets and income
