“Why Your 50s Are a Good Time to Begin Thinking About Long-Term Care,” by Geoff Williams, U.S. News & World Report
“Sure, it seems crazy to start thinking about a possible future when you’re infirmed and need long-term health care if you’re only in your 50s. You’re young, or relatively young, and healthy. But that’s the point. You don’t want to someday be unable to take care of yourself and wish that you had done some pre-planning. If you’re in your 50s, and you’re not thinking about long-term care, these are some reasons you should be considering it.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Mostly sound advice except for suggesting that people with $150K to $200K should rely on Medicaid without disclosing Medicaid’s many access and quality deficiencies.
