Why You Should Care About Long Term Care Now
CT Eldercare Attorney Encourages Everyone to Plan While You Can

When saving for retirement, most people plan to use the money to travel the world, pursue a hobby or visit family. Unfortunately, a sudden illness or disability or the natural progression of a chronic condition such as diabetes can require long term care that burdens them financially, quickly draining bank accounts, brokerage accounts and retirement funds like IRAs. The reality is that 70% of people turning 65 can expect to use some form of long term care during their lifetime. Ideally, planning for that care should begin many years before it's even considered a remote possibility.
