It will never happen to me!
Maybe you are the lucky one who will dodge the long term care bullet, but the odds are not on your side. At age 65, 1 out of 2 people will need some kind of long term care. Prior to age 65, you could have a freak accident, a stroke, MS, complications from Diabetes, Cancer, and the list goes on and on. Long term care scenarios happen to real people.
I'm already covered!
Long term care isn’t considered medical care which means that your health insurance won’t pay for your long term care needs. If you’re 65 or older, Medicare limits coverage to 100 days.
My children will take care of me!
If you are lucky enough to have your adult children living near you, they are probably working full time and raising children of their own. Is it realistic to think that they can stop the merry-go-round to get off to take care of you?
My wife/husband will take care of me!
Even if your wife/husband is a nurse, a reality check finds this to be impractical and maybe even impossible. Could you physically take care of your spouse/partner alone?
It's too expensive!
