Long-term care (LTC) insurance is becoming more and more vital to getting quality long-term care for ourselves and our loved ones when it is needed most.

An LTC insurance policy should be discussed as part of an overall Elder Care plan to provide full and complete long-term care for you and/or your loved ones.

We should be concerned about our long-term care options. We deserve and are entitled to the best care we can get along with the ability to pay for such care. LTC insurance is designed to provide the financing to pay for home care services and long-term living arrangements, such as assisted living facilities or skilled nursing facilities. Additionally, by ensuring that we will get the care that we need, and have it paid for by the LTC insurance company under the terms of the LTC insurance policy, we will make sure that our loved ones act as our caregivers by choice not by obligation.

Take a few moments to discuss your long-term care options with your Elder Care attorney. Ultimately, your Elder Care plan may or may not include LTC insurance. But, you will be better off for asking the right questions of the right professionals, than not fully understanding your rights and options when it comes to your own long-term care.

The firm’s Elder Care Department works with its clients in connection with their long-term healthcare decisions, disability protections, and need for advanced medical directives. We also represent individuals and assist them in obtaining Medicare and Medicaid benefits to pay for long-term home care and nursing home care.
