As we age, our needs increase. We may need extensive medical care after the onset of an unexpected medical condition, long-term care may become necessary, and for some, a live-in aid may prove beneficial. As helpful as these services can be, they can also be quite costly. This can be problematic for individuals who are retired or are unable to work on account of their condition. This is why care planning is so important.

Previously, this blog discussed ways individuals could seek assistance in covering their long-term medical costs. Although Medicaid and Medicare can provide significant assistance to many individuals, it often isn’t enough to fully cover the costs needed. Making matter worse, this is not the only thing that needs to be considered when thinking about one’s future care. He or she also needs to consider what will happen to them in the event that they become incapacitated and are no longer able to care for themselves.

Care planning can be stressful, as none of us really want to think about our almost inevitable decline in health.
