Long Term Care Involves Expense and Emotion
The expense and emotion of Long Term Care can be overwhelming. As you go about finding Long Term Care providers in your state, you must also consider how you will pay these for these resources. I previously wrote about costs of Long Term Care in your State, which you may find helpful.
Carol Ventimiglia, 70, of South Plainfield, N.J., is adamant about having long-term care insurance because she saw both of her parents die, unhappily, in nursing homes. Her father spent much of his savings on his care, and her mother, who had diabetes and developed dementia, ended up on Medicaid and died from a wound infection.
Ms. Ventimiglia wants coverage so she and her husband, Robert, 71, can be cared for at home. They have three adult children, and they don’t want them to have to worry about caring for their parents. “If you’ve ever had anyone in a nursing home, you don’t ever want to go there,” she said. “I’d rather be taken care of at home as long as possible. That’s my wish and his wish, too.”
