Did You Know?
One of the most common statements that we hear from physicians is “I will never end up needing long-term care.” According to LongTermCare.gov, 70% of people over the age of 65 can expect to use some form of long-term care during their lives. That means there is a pretty good chance that you will need long-term care in the future.
Long-term care has to do with your activities of daily living, not your medical needs. Long-term care facilities and in-home assistants address basic everyday needs like helping you with clothing, cooking, bathing and transferring. Since Medicare is a federal program that provides hospital and medical insurance to those 65 and above, a Medicare health plan will not cover long-term care needs.
