Abstract

Figures the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show that nearly 70 percent of people turning age 65 will need long-term care at some point in their lives. Yet, according to a study by the Associated Press–NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, only 54 percent of Americans age 40 and older have planned for long-term care.
