Hello -

I have LTC ins through my place of employment. I am 55 and my hubby is 56. The motivator was that to have this type of insurance is a buffer against invading hard earned and hard saved capital for extended care.
We both had to consider each other and who would be left holding the financial baggage should one of us incur a lingering illness.
Compound that with the emotional toll that could be taken because of this is a double whammy. My slant is if you can afford to do this, do it and have some peace of mind. Mr Buffalo's family has a history of Alzheimer's. Mine, peripheral vascular disease - both male and female.
Mr Buffalo's parents were prepared for care because of their wisdom in anticipating this and getting insurance long ago. My FIL now has good care in a nursing home and my MIL is not worried about how to pay for it. She gets a check every month that covers expenses. My .02
