Long term care insurance covers the cost of nursing home stays, assisted living facilities, or caretakers for aging people with health issues.

When should you think about obtaining this insurance? The Sweet spot age to purchase is between 50 to 60

So, Who should look into LTC insurance? Every aging American! On average, one month in a nursing home is around $7,600!

Anyone who is over 50 and has health issues

Caretakers caring for someone 50 and older with persistent health issues

Aging and having health challenges in the process can be scary for the person experiencing it and their family, but LTC insurance can make it easier for everyone.
