Who Needs Long-Term Planning?
Since life expectancy in the U.S. is at an all-time high, it is becoming inevitable that most of us will require long-term care at some point in our lives. This could include in-home assistance or a long-term nursing home stay, both of which can be extremely expensive. To make matters worse, most private health insurance plans and even Medicare don’t cover long-term care costs, which on average range from $4,000 to $12,000+ per month in the U.S., depending on where you live and the level of care required.
Studies estimate that nearly two-thirds of families will run out of money within the first year or two of moving into a nursing home.
