What is Long-Term Care?

Making a long-term care plan is more than just buying insurance or updating a will.


It’s about mapping your own course and living life as you want.


It’s considering what you’ll need to live independently for as long as possible and includes thinking about your home and community, your health and finances, and even your medical wishes.


Don’t leave these important life decisions to someone else. Small steps now will secure a safer, happier future.
