Long Term Care

Are you concerned about Long-Term Care?  You should be!  According to Medicare, at least 70% of people over 65 will need long-term care services at some point.  Long-term care includes medical and non-medical care for people who have a chronic illness or disability.  Non-medical care includes non-skilled personal care assistance, like help with everyday activities, including dressing, bathing, and using the bathroom.
