Important LTC Information

Average costs of one year of care in a facility are over $50,000 per year. Home care can be as costly or more than facility-based care, depending on the type and amount of home care required. Depending on the facility, care in the Northwest can be as high as $6,000 a month and up. Round-the-clock home care already can cost $10,000 a month and up, though most home care is much less than that. How would you pay for these costs?
