"Hidden money; Overlooked funds could pay for Long Term Care"
Barbara Horstmeyer, Senior Planning Group, Inc.
There are countless ways to finance long-term care needs. All too often, though, individuals do not pursue a comprehensive care plan early enough to cover all of their future costs. Either they are not proactive, or they plan to “self-insure” for long-term care through the lifetime accumulation of personal savings and investments. But, unless you have amassed substantial monetary resources, these costs can wipe out a person’s life savings in a relatively short amount of time. Learn about all your options when paying for long-term care!
