Tips for long term care planning for every age

RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Did you know that nearly everyone will be touched by a long term care situation, either their own or with a close family member? Research from the U.S. government has found that the number of people who will need long term care in their lifetime is rapidly increasing. In 2008, the government found that about 9 million Americans over the age of 65 would need long term care services. By 2020, that number will increase to 12 million.

Forty percent of people currently receiving long term care are adults 18 to 64 years old.*

"Particularly in today's economy, people should educate themselves about the many choices and opportunities they have for themselves and their families to meet the challenges of living a long life - and ensuring the best quality of life that they can," said Genworth spokesperson Wendy Boglioli. "Issues of economics and health care go hand-in-hand, starting at a personal level and on up to a national level for our new President and h
