At MAS Group, our friendly Long Island long-term care insurance agents will help walk you through the right plan that best suits your and your family’s needs.
As the average life span for men and women in the United States closes in on 80 years, a new type of insurance, known as long-term care insurance, has grown rapidly in popularity to protect people from a new concern…aging. While people are living longer and modern medical science can minimize the amount of health concerns, a growing number of people require long-term care and protection of their assets, such as real estate and cash.
Recent research suggests that 60 percent of Americans over the age of 65 will require some form of long-term care during their lifetime. And, even more surprising, is that some 40 percent of long-term care insurance clients are ages 18-64. In short, the need for long-term care insurance is critical and it’s best to start thinking about it as early as possible.
At Long Island long-term care insurance agency, MAS Group, we are keenly aware of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Upstate New York, and Long Island long-term care needs and the general “graying” of the population. Our friendly and informed Long Island insurance brokers will help walk you through the right plan that best suits your and your family’s needs.
A recent review of nursing home costs uncovered that the national average cost of one year in a nursing home with a private room is over $87,000. And within major metropolitan areas such as New York, the costs can be as much as $200,000 or more per year. This is because older Americans are requiring long-term care due to their inability to perform at least two activities of daily living (such as bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring) or if the person requires supervision due to a severe cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s disease or Senile Dementia. It’s inevitable…we’re all going to get older. Why jeopardize your savings and your children’s future due to the rising cost of long-term care?
Losing a loved one is a tragic event.
