Jacket Description:
Most people embrace life with a positive outlook on longevity and good
health, rarely considering the alternative. But most of us - young or old, single or married with children - will need to contemplate long-term care decisions for ourselves or a loved one eventually. These decisions can be emotionally and financially draining if advance preparations have not been made.

Now, a compact new guide walks you through the maze of issues you need to consider when making long-term care choices. In his simple, straightforward style financial planning expert Don Korn focuses on the most common and crucial factors for determining long-term care needs, including:

o Funding long-term care - what options are available if financial
resources are not?
o Long-term care for a young or disabled person - do the same policies apply?
o How to qualify for government care programs such as Medicaid -and is that the best route for the family or the heirs?
o Evaluating long-term care settings and facilities - what to look for, and how to guarantee that choices are honored?
