Long Term Care insurance is a subject that many of us don’t want to think about. The prospect of needing long term care is daunting and many times we are in denial that “it won’t happen to me”. Yet statics show that 1 out 2 people will need some type of Long Term Care in their lifetime.


Long term care is the care people need when they can't perform the tasks of ordinary living independently. Long Term care refers to a wide range of medical, personal and social services.

This type of care may include help with activities of daily living such as eating, dressing, transferring, bathing, toileting and continence. It can also be care related to cognitive impairment like memory loss or dementia.

A person may be able to dress themselves and get around, but they may have trouble remembering to take their medication. Many policies also offer a Care Coordinator benefit which gives you the benefit of having a licensed health care professional who can assess your needs and develop an individualized care plan.

This is an extremely helpful benefit for those friends or family members who are coordinating your care. Long Term Care may include care in the following settings:
