LTC Insurance Protects More Than FinancesRyan Hogan
Yes – a LTC claim does have a financial impact but the impact is far more reaching…
The greatest impact a Long Term Care claim can have is on the emotional and physical states of the family. From a spouses health going into decline due to the stress and physical labor needed to care for a loved one, to your daughter putting her life on hold.
I’ve seen spouses decline from caregiving as my fathers care put my mom in the hospital as the strain was too much for her heart. My personal fear is that my daughter putting her life on hold as I have seen others do. Women to their credit are the caregivers of the world and daughters are compelled to take care of their parents should they need help. As a parent however it’s my job to raise them well, for them to leave the house and make the most out of their lives. I would feel guilty if my health put their life on hold for an extended period of time.
Are your kids in a position of providing care or managing it?
