Prepare now for the care you may need in the future

You are getting older, and part of getting older is planning for what happens next. As you age, you may find that you aren't as agile as you used to be. You may be less healthy and have more medical concerns.

While no one can be sure if they will need long-term care, it's a good idea to plan for it anyway. Any kind of unexpected illness, injury or accident could change your needs suddenly and that's something you need to be prepared for.

Who should start planning for long-term care?

Anyone can start planning for long-term care at any time, but those who should definitely start right away are those with cognitive impairments or health that is guaranteed to decline in some way. For example, a patient who has Alzheimer's disease may want to start planning sooner rather than later since there is little they can do to predict the course of the disease.

What should you do if you want to stay out of a nursing home?

If you are eager to stay in your own home and out of the nursing home, it's important to consider this early on and to set up a plan for bringing care into your home if you fall ill. There are many programs that can deliver food or provide care to those who stay in their own homes rather than going to nursing homes, but they're something you should plan ahead for.

Our site has more on long-term care planning and how your attorney can help you make solid long-term plans for your health and security.
