risk of care for the average 59 year old male and a
54 year old female:
Care is the greatest health care risk that most Americans
face. This care may be in your own home, assisted living
communities or in a Nursing Home. The fact remains that
the risk of needing extended care is GREATER THAN 50%
That's at any point in our lives, but a Harvard University
study said that "25% of Americans over age 50 are
at a high risk of needing long term care services during
the next 12 months."
exploding growth in the need for long term care planning
is a result of the change in demographics. One-third
of all Americans (76 million people) were born between
1946 and 1964 - the so called baby boomers. We are on
the average of the nations first senior boom. One in
four people in this country are already over age 50.
issue simply cannot be ignored. You have insured your
home, care and hospital care. Why shouldn't you handle
this risk the same way?
