Who needs Long Term Care?
Even though you plan to remain healthy, active and independent, there’s a good chance, at some point, you’ll need help. Consider these statistics:
Today, people age 65 and older face a 40 percent lifetime risk of entering a nursing home — about 10 percent will stay there five years or more.
It’s not just the elderly, however, who require Long Term Care. Forty percent of the 12 million Americans receiving Long Term Care are between the ages of 18 and 64.
Because women generally outlive men, are they more at risk?
Yes, the issue of Long Term Care should be especially important to women because they traditionally provide (see Unpaid caregiving issues) and receive the majority of Long Term Care services. Consider these statistics:
After age 65, women face a 50 percent greater likelihood than men of entering a nursing home.
Seventy-five percent of nursing home residents 65 years and older are female, and two-thirds of home health care users are female.
