What Is Long Term Insurance?
Long term care insurance can help seniors pay for assisted living or in home care as an alternative to out-of-pocket costs. Seniors typically qualify for home care insurance benefits when they cannot do essential daily tasks independently. Depending on the plan chosen, coverage may vary but frequently includes:
- Respite Care
- Assisted Living Communities
- Alzheimer's or dementia care facilities
Like other types of insurance, you must pay a premium to ensure that the insurance provider will pay your care expenses up to the predetermined monetary level (depending on the period of coverage you desire and your financial capacity). If you don't have long term care insurance, you'll have to pay for your future in home care expenses from your income and savings.
