  1. Reblogged this on NorthernMSW: Advocacy, Aging, Healthcare & Social Work Issues….. and commented:
    60% of those in the ages of 40-65 currently do not think they will need long term care…..hmmm, they will age well, die young or have a lot of money saved up for private home care assistance…..

    The reality is people are living longer and unless money has been saved, a person/senior may need to go to a residence or long term care facility.

    One cannot depend on family as adult children are raising their own children, working and many live out of town from where the senior lives.
