Long Term Care and You

It's the month of our nation's Thanksgiving, and the time of year we reflect and give thanks. When it comes to long term care, we owe much gratitude to those who give countless hours of care—including Alzheimer's care in a facility by formal caregivers or personal care at home by friends and family.

Long Term Care Awareness Month is an opportunity for you to consider the importance of having a long term care plan in place and the value of long term care insurance such as the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP).

Long Term Care
The prospect of needing long term care may be far from your mind today, but circumstances can change. With people living longer, the chances of you or an aging relative requiring this type of care increases, which may bring added responsibility for you and your family. Help protect your family with the FLTCIP.

One in 10 people age 65 and older has Alzheimer's disease1. Alzheimer's patients may require increasing levels of assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating. Planning now can help to reduce financial and emotional stress on your family. Learn how long term care insurance can help.
