Long Term Care

Long-term care insurance is a type of insurance that covers the cost of care for people who need assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating due to an illness, disability, or aging. Long-term care can be provided in a variety of settings, including in a person's home, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home.

Long-term care insurance policies typically provide coverage for a set number of years, and may have a waiting period before benefits are paid out. The cost of the insurance premium is based on a number of factors, including the age and health of the policyholder, the level of coverage chosen, and the length of the policy.

Long-term care insurance can be an important tool for individuals and families who want to ensure they have the financial resources to pay for long-term care should they need it. It can provide peace of mind and help protect against the potentially high costs of long term care services. Given certain policy provisions like waiting periods, it is important to plan ahead and consider purchasing long-term coverage before you may need it.
