Anyone can need long term care at any time in their life. Automobile and sporting accidents; disabling events such as strokes, brain tumors, and spinal cord injuries; and disabling illnesses such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease are examples of injuries and ailments that can happen to anyone at any age.
Nearly 41% of long term care is provided to people under age 65 who need help taking care of themselves due to diseases, disabling chronic conditions, injury, developmental disabilities, and severe mental illness. 70% of people turning age 65 will need long-term care services at some point in their lives.

And, contrary to what many people believe, Medicare and private insurance programs do not pay for the majority of long term care services that most people need . . . Planning is essential for you to be able to get the care you might need.
