"This certainly points to the wisdom of educating yourself about all the options and making the decision that's best for you and your family."

Following are the steps to take throughout the decades of your life to be prepared:

TAKING CHARGE AT ANY AGE

Here are the top four things you can do to take charge of your health and finances. These are great guidelines that build on each other as you age.

20s - Commit to physical and financial health. A healthy relationship with your body AND your money starts now.

30s - Maintain your medical records and know what's written in them. Check for red flags and mistakes and ensure you see that they are appropriately addressed.

40s - Review your current insurance policies and investments. Start researching what options are available to you in case of a long term care event and who may provide them. Make sure you have planning documents such as a living will and medical power of attorney. Discuss your wishes with your family should a long term care event occur.

50s and beyond - Put your long term care plan in writing. You can rely on your family, the limited funds of the government, yourself or long term care insurance to pay for the care you may need in the future. Only you - with some careful financial planning - will know
