Long Term Care Planning Challenges and Solutions

Desjardins Insurance

People often wonder what will be my reality at 85? Will I need long term care?

What do governments provide and not provide for aging Canadians needing care

I am seeing more and more in the media about the aging tsunami – headlines like ‘Boomers will have to pay for much of their own long term care’ and ‘Long term care takes planning’. I am confused and frustrated…what do I need to do?

Will I become a caregiver? If so, what can I expect?

More and more Canadians are living to over 100. I worry about out – living my money and suffering from one or more illnesses; is this reasonable?

Will the present health care system be able to provide long-term care to the boomers over the next 35 years?
