While you’re fit and healthy, it’s only natural to delay thinking about what may lie ahead for your care needs. However, planning for long-term care is one of the most effective ways of protecting both yourself and loved ones from the financial cost of what may happen in the future.
As painful as it may be to focus on your possible long-term residential or nursing care needs, by planning ahead today you will save a great deal of money, as well as unhappiness and stress, tomorrow.
You need to consider what will happen if you do need care at a later date, in terms of how this will be funded. Without proper planning, you run the risk of any inheritance for loved ones and other beneficiaries being swallowed up by care costs or of your partner losing the family home in order to pay for your care fees.
