Preparing for the possibility of long-term care for yourself or a loved one is a daunting task. First and foremost is the cost, which depends on the type and duration of care you need, the provider you use, and where you live. Currently, the cost of long-term care in a skilled-care facility in Northern Kentucky can range between $9,000 to $12,000 monthly. A home health aide, meanwhile, can cost at least $4,000 per month, depending on the type of care provided. The level of care and living arrangements can affect your costs greatly, and there are various types of long-term care available.
Words and phrases such as estates, nursing homes, mental incapacity, long-term care costs, trusts, and probate administrations do not exactly inspire feelings of wonder and excitement in most folks. Planning for these potential events can often seem a little scary and confusing.
