in some sort of institution—probably a nursing home. My brother would probably have given up his life in New Jersey to look after them, and my wife and I would probably be paying for their care, which by now would have cost nearly $500,000. When my wife, Maddy, and I stopped to think about it five years ago, we considered what might happen to our lives if sometime down the road we needed extended care. Although my folks bought their policies in their 70s, we decided to buy ours in our early 50s, when the rates are lower and the likelihood of qualifying is far higher. And, we also took advantage of the special discounts for couples. In addition, because we are small business owners, around three quarters of our premiums turned out to be tax-deductible. While I don’t think everyone needs LTC insurance, I do believe that everyone should have a plan for how they’re going to be looked after should they need extended care, and how they’re going to pay for it without burdening their families.

But there will soon be a shortage of family caregivers for four reasons: 1. Fewer children to provide care (today’s elders had around four children per couple, while boomers have had only two). 2. Family members may not live nearby due to increased mobility and relocations. 3. Escalating numbers of singles without a spouse to care for them, due to rising divorce rates and widowhood (women outlive men by more than five years). 4. Highest rates—ever—of both middle-aged men and women working. And so, the adult daughter or son might need (or wish) to work. Share this article with your friends.
