October is Long-Term Care Planning Month. We at Visiting Angels NJ know how especially important it is to plan, as we work with clients and their families on a daily basis who are in need of our home care services. Most people may not know that Medicare, health insurance, and disability coverages won’t pay for most long-term care services. When a crisis occurs with an elder loved one, families are often faced with making quick, high-pressure, costly decisions regarding care. By planning ahead, you will have alleviated some of that pressure and you will also have more options for care.
