Scovey;
I expect to remain at home should alzheimers or another ailment strike and require home care. My younger wife should probably outlive me.

This may not be a viable plan.( you are right there) I have a neighbor, the husband recently developed alzhimers, it became so bad that
his wife, only a few years younger, could not keep/control him at home. ( I have a client near Sun City who has her husband in a lock down board and care at $2700/month, that is coming right out of the old money market account, a check one right after the other month after month) Fortunately, she was able to get LTC
insurance (good call there) before he was diagnosed with dementia, I think by the skin of their teeth. (can you imagine having premiums for this rediculous insurance ?) He is now in a full time care
center (oh well maybe not so rediculous all of those premiums came back in about 9 months time I bet) and she visits regularly. Sad, but true.

I recommend you have a 'Plan B' in place, just in case. )great recommendation sounds to me like your selling something)

Great Post
