Many states have a high cost for long term care and nursing but California is very explosive in expenses.
State Median Annual Care Costs for 2010 are:
Nursing Home Care
- Private Room $87,345
- Semi-private Room $73,000
Assisted Living Facility
- Private, one bedroom $42,000
Adult Day Health Care
- Adult day health care $20,020
- Home health aide $46,904
- Homemaker Services $45,646
The statistics are that 7 in 10 people will require one of these types of long term care in their senior years. The question is what have you done to take care of this potential problem?
You need to look at a long term care policy or better yet, an insurance policy that provides for supplemental retirement income but also has living benefits if you need them like nursing care. To ignore the numbers is to ignore a fact like you’re going to get old and that everyone has to pay taxes. You need to be responsible to your loved ones and in order to preserve all that you are and have worked for from going out the window to pay for this.
