Looking baack with hindsight, what is the single most important thing to do preparing for retirement?

My wife and I protected our nest egg by taking out long-term health care insurance, and asking our son to do the same.

The importance of this came home to me as my mother's estate was depleted by $300,000 over the five-year period she lived in a nursing home.


How much will the long-term care insurance premiums "deplete your estate" over your lifetime?
