To find the right kind of long-term care, you may need to make difficult personal, medical, and financial decisions during emotionally tough times. Long-Term Care helps you and your family understand the range of available choices. Even more important, it guides you toward the best care you can afford. You'll learn how to: explore your options for home care, assisted living, and nursing homes, get the most out of Medicaid, Medicare, and veterans' programs, evaluate whether long-term care insurance is worth the significant expense, consider the special needs of loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer's, and protect your loved ones from elder fraud. This award winner 12th edition is completely updated with the latest long-term care costs, Medicaid rules, and resources.
