No solution here, but your story and the subject you bring up really hits home. I'm only 57 but preparing with some of my peers for retirement in a couple of years. Of course we all prefer to focus on on our savings and investments and wonder how long they'll keep us going to Arizona. When the question of LTC comes up the discussion stops. Period. There amy be someone bold enough to bemoan the actual cost of the care,
or,
worse to some of us,
the cost of the insurance.

But, I applaud you for putting the matter Foolishly before us,
and as always,
in the good manner of what I've come to expect of the
Fools I find here.

Thanks.

Thanks for the compliment. Our intent is simply to remind folks that retirement isn't all a bed of roses in that these issues need to be considered while we can still take some action to minimize the problems involved. I hope the series will give many food for thought as they contemplate their own situation. As you say, there is no solution provided in these writings, but I trust we'll provide some approaches that may help alleviate our concerns in this area.

Regards..Pixy
