Whether you are caring for your loved one in the home, scrambling to make arrangements for nursing home care or trying to make sure nothing goes wrong in the nursing home, you know how difficult, time-consuming and isolating caregiving can be.

Approximately 70 percent of Americans over the age of 65 will need long-term care services during their lifetime.
Long-term care is needed for three years, on average.
Twelve percent of parents with a child in their home are also providing unpaid care for an aging parent.
A recent survey showed that 68 percent of Americans did not have a will or other estate planning documents.
Forty-one percent of Americans over 55 have advance health directives.
Thirty-three percent of Americans over 55 have a durable power of attorney.
Only 18 percent of Americans over 55 have all three essential estate planning documents (a will, advance health care directive, and durable power of attorney).
Nearly all Americans over 55 (91 percent) say that dying without an estate plan or other end-of-life plan would be “irresponsible, inconsiderate or ignorant.”
