funny you should bring this up now. we just started looking at long term care plans
. my husband and i are 47 now. my mom and dad are in their 80's and long term care insurance has worked out well for them. but, on the other hand i do tend to feel a little slighted and confused. my mom and dad are from scotland (live in ohio). over seas seniors are treated very well, they get all meds free, they can travel free on buses, their med care is free. although, people in scotland also do not have the stuff, that americans do and , they pay much higher taxes through their life time than we. so i think? it actually evens out in some odd way. with good long term care insurance we can go to pretty nice facilities, in scotland, seniors must go to run of the mill facilities,(they are taken care of very well but they arn't fancy) if they want really nice places they must pay extra. my aunt stays at home (she lives in gourock , scotland) a care giver comes 4 times a day to help her get up , fix breakfast dressed etc... then they come back about 1400 for her tea
i think that is just wounderful, funny but wounderful. after all a scott can not live without their tea
!:smiletea2: (she is on the standard senior care-nothing special) so in colnclusion, who the heck knows !
