Women are More Likely to be Long Term Care Givers than Men; Who Takes Care of Them?

New York, New York (PressExposure) April 26, 2011 -- Women are the primary care givers in families, and this includes into old age. They often outlive their spouses, and take care of them until they are no longer able to. Women over 65 are more likely to live alone, and end up in nursing homes alone, having no one to take care of them after caring for others for so long. This also leaves them to handle many of the financial burdens associated with long term care for themselves and their spouses-which can be daunting. Fortunately, the new book by Harold Lustig Naked in the Nursing Home: The Women's Guide to Paying for Long Term Care without Going Broke, provides many solutions to the problems women face during this difficult time in their lives.

Naked in the Nursing Home provides readers with plans to help protect their assets, find the most appropriate insurance for their needs, learn about wartime veteran long term care benefits, protect valuable government benefits for nursing home care, and ensure safety of the elderly. Harold Lustig also provides clear action steps for readers, from how to find a good elderly law attorney to how to choose the proper nursing home. Readers will also have a clearer picture of when to cover health care costs with Medicare and Medicaid, and ways that they can start preparing now for future financial burdens.
