“According to the tenth annual Nationwide Retirement Institute® Long-term Care survey of 1,812 U.S. adults aged 24 or over and 706 caregivers, conducted by The Harris Poll in October 2021, the vast majority of Americans (88%) believe it’s more important than ever for people to have a plan for long-term care and have long-term care insurance (86%) as COVID-19 has raised concerns about nursing homes. … What’s more, 80% of Americans agree that it is important for them to live in a single-floor home when they age. In contrast, 68% of non-retirees say their current home has stairs.”

Covid is to LTC awareness like a two-by-four to a mule. Now that you have their attention go get them covered.
