Long-term care is very expensive. Some insurance companies want to raise
the cost of their monthly premiums, while others are no longer offering such policies at all anymore.
In many parts of the world, family members provide daily health care for their loved one whose health is failing. But sometimes their abilities fall behind the increasing needs of the patient. This is when long-term care may be needed.
Long-term care is expensive. Why? Because trained caregivers are needed,
in a controlled environment. The family may be forced to employ homemaker
services at home, but often they need an assisted living facility, hospice, or a nursing home.
This will cost money for the rest of the ailing person's life. Without insurance, it can bleed you dry.
