Planning for Long Term Care Insurance in Mississippi

Long term care is typically not covered by medical insurance. With advances in medical research and technology, most of us are likely to live into our eighties or beyond. Hence, the chances of needing long term care are high. However, it is not just seniors who require it; a young person who is ill or meets with an accident could also end up needing long term care. Not many of us are financially equipped to meet these ongoing and heavy expenses. Advanced planning will help maintain quality of life and ease both financial and emotional stress.

Key Facts about Long Term Care
Many individuals are uncertain about whether or not to invest in long term care insurance. The following statistics from the Family Caregiver Alliance® National Center on Caregiving will help you make the right decision:

  • An estimated 12 million Americans needed long-term care in 2007.
  • Not all persons in need of long-term care are elderly—approximately 63% were aged 65 and older while the rest were younger.
  • The lifetime probability of becoming disabled in at least two activities of daily living or of being cognitively impaired is 68% for people age 65 and older.
  • By 2050, the number of individuals using paid long-term care services will likely double (from the 13 million in 2000) to 27 million people.
  • The prevalence of cognitive impairment among the older population increased over the past decade. There could be an increase from 1.6 million to 6.2 million people age 85 or over with severe or moderate memory impairment in 2050.

    My very first insurance experience was when I bought my first house and I called the Nowell agency for a quote. I had no idea what I needed or how much and they were so very kind and knowledgeable and explained everything to me in detail which I so much appreciated. That has been 4 years ago and im still a customer never plan to leave.
