Crisis Management Places Burden of Future Long-Term Care on Family and Finances


Unless you plan ahead for the financial costs and burdens of aging, the ugly truth is that this responsibility will fall on your children.

Would the decisions your children make on your behalf in the future be the exact same ones you would make now for yourself?

While not a fun topic of discussion, it illustrates some of the serious issues you should consider as you plan for a successful future retirement.

“The consequences of getting older include a high risk of needing long-term care services and supports. This doesn’t mean a nursing home as most extended care is delivered at home. The fact is we need to have some plan for long-term care before we need it,” said Matt McCann, a well-known speaker and specialist in Long-Term Care Insurance.

McCann knows the ugly truth: too many American families face crisis management. Families end up becoming full or part-time caregivers or taking time off to manage paid care services. Paid care is expensive and adversely impacts your income and lifestyle.

“Most people tell me that they want to give their family the time to be family. They understand their children have, or will have their own families, careers, and the responsibilities that accompany them. An easy and affordable solution exists to avoid a crisis which forces quick decisions which they often regret later,” McCann explained.

With an affordable Long-Term Care Insurance policy, you will have access to your choice of quality care options. Most plans provide case management that provides professional help and assistance in developing a plan of care based on your preferences and finding the right caregivers or facilities based on your needs.

“People require extended care due to illness, accident, or the impact of aging. Long-Term Care Insurance is very affordable and provides many options. These policies are custom designed. With the help of a Long-Term Care Insurance specialist, an affordable plan will safeguard your assets and reduce the stress and burden otherwise placed on those you love,” McCann said.
