In general, they said that LTC was only a good value if you had less than $1,000,000 in assets.

There is a sweet spot; usually more that $300,000 but less than $2 mil. If you don't have any assets, then there is no reason for insurance since medicaid kicks in.

Even at $5000-$6000 per month for an Alzheimer's unit, a million dollars lasts a long time.

You might want to reprice that. I don't have a single client paying that little for the care of their spouse. The most recent client I met has her husband in such a unit paying $9000 a month - in the midwest.
