February 11, 2021 Long Term Care Planning

Long-term care planning can be a daunting and complicated process. Fortunately, our team at Senior Care Counsel is here to help you learn about your options and take the necessary steps to protect your life savings and get the care you need. Here are three of the most important things to remember as you embark on your long-term care planning journey.


1. Planning for your care is not as expensive as you might think.

Are you worried about the costs associated with developing a long-term care plan? If so, it’s important to remember that the cost of NOT planning for your care far outweighs the cost of putting effective plans in place. With the cost of a nursing home ranging from $7,000 to $10,000 per month (or MORE), you risk losing your hard-earned assets in a matter of months, leaving you and your loved ones with nothing. On the other hand, when you plan for your long-term care, you’re spending a small fraction of your life’s work to protect the rest of it. And we promise you it’s worth it!

2. You can choose a customized long-term care plan for your situation.

Long-term care planning is not a one-size-fits-all arrangement. The solution that will work best for you depends on your unique situation. Working with a professional allows you to discover which option will yield the best results for you and your loved ones. For example, when planning ahead for long-term care, your options may include purchasing a Long-Term Care Insurance policy, funding an irrevocable trust, or gifting a portion of your assets to your loved ones.
