long-term care insurance
Long-term care insurance is designed to help you pay for long-term care services received at home or in a nursing facility in the event you or a family member can no longer perform everyday activities such as eating, bathing, toileting or dressing. Although most people associate long-term care with their later years, it's important to know that the need for long-term care can happen at any time and at any age as the result of an unexpected illness or accident. The costs of these types of services are expensive and often can exhaust financial savings.
