Thanks in large part to advances in science and the benefits of modern medicine, Americans are living longer lives than they have in generations past. While these extra years can be wonderful for lengthening the time that grandparents have with their grandkids and allowing seniors to try new experiences and adventures, it also means that more and more adults are living to ages where they cannot take care of themselves.

Long-term care planning is the term given to what a person should do to ensure that they will be taken care of even if they cannot undertake those responsibilities themselves. New York residents may eventually need in-home care, which can involve having helpers come in to cook, clean and even help them get through their daily tasks like dressing and eating. Others may need more support and may opt to take residence in care or nursing home facilities. While some individuals may have family members who will help them in their efforts as they age, others may have to manage such matters on their own.
