We sing this – about “the olden days” – on New Years’ Eve.
However, in the world of long term care planning, honestly, there’s not too much to reminisce about. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Here’s the way I see it.
Old people need care. Sometimes extensive care (not to mention expensive care).
Unfortunately, either through denial or ignorance, few want to admit to this fact. They also don’t want to pay for the care…especially not in advance.
So, as the saying goes, Houston, we have a problem!
