Long-Term Care Planner

Long-term care is needed by those individuals who are unable to perform the basic tasks required to take care of themselves. This includes not only those who are elderly, but also individuals who may be suffering from a debilitating illness or chronic injury. The need for long-term care can arise unexpectedly at any age and can potentially create a large financial burden.
