What are your options for long-term care?

Updated: Sep 27

Whether you make the plan for yourself or for another loved one facing his or her later years, it is important to understand what options you have for long-term care. There are many questions to tackle, preferences to consider and legal documentation to analyze.

In the event that you or your loved one needs long-term care, there are frequently three types brought up: personal unpaid caregiving, hired caregiving and long-term nursing home care.

Unpaid caregiving

According to the American Association of Retired Persons, around 53 million adult Americans provide care to their loved ones as unpaid caregivers. This might be due to finances or preference. When you provide the care yourself, you choose how to provide it.

Paid caregiving

If you or your loved one desires to stay in your home, there are paid professionals willing to step up. Paid caregivers frequently have advanced training regardless of whether their duties involve basic errands or in-depth tasks like memory care.

Another option that combines these two is you becoming a paid caregiver through New York state programs. Instead of money from an estate or Medicaid benefits going to another caregiver, they help pay for your services.

Nursing home care

Nursing homes offer a facility with a trained staff that aims to provide hospitality and care depending on your or your loved one’s needs.

There are many strategies to approach this issue when it comes to planning for the future of the elderly as well as options to afford them. It is important to investigate these options with reliable resources to make sure you make the choice that fits your needs best.
