Long Term Care Awareness Month
November is Long Term Care Awareness Month. Most people are unaware of what Long Term Care really is and who needs it. Below we have a brief description.
Long Term Care insurance pays for the care you need when you can no longer care for yourself. Anyone who has experienced Alzheimer’s, stroke, or Parkinson’s knows all too well the financial devastation that can be caused by these life events and the ongoing medical care they require. Long Term Care insurance is protection against such events.
Contrary to popular belief, neither Medicare nor your health insurance policy will cover Long Term Care services. The last thing anyone wants is to become a burden to their family and Long Term Care insurance helps to make sure that will not happen to you or your loved ones. It can provide you with the control and financial resources to help cover Long Term Care costs as well as the independence to choose where you receive care.
