Long Term Care


People are living longer these days, but as life expectancies increase, so does the risk of serious health problems that could require long-term care. In fact, at retirement age, 70% of Americans will need long-term care and 40% will enter a nursing home.1 And with the average cost for nursing home care in a semiprivate room equating to more than $91,250 per year, that could literally cost most or all of your life’s savings.2
