Without adequate information and planning, many seniors make unwise or inappropriate decisions about their long-term care. They may be afraid they cannot afford the type of care they need or worry that nursing care will drain their estates of any possible assets to leave for their children. As a result, a loved one may end up sick and declining at home or in the care of a family member who quickly becomes overwhelmed with the responsibility.
Fortunately, planning ahead can allow you to set goals and identify any issues that may raise concerns in the future. Doing so sooner instead of later may save you frustration and stress.
