Long term care should be considered by everyone especially in the future. We grow old and we can have diseases so we need to make sure that this is provided for in the future.

Long term care is a means of providing opportunities for investment for those with the capital.

Long term Nursing home care for those with Alzheimer's or Dementia is known... Ask any psychiatrist or pharmaceutical executive.

The taking of homes and bank accounts for payment?

The Yachtsman group of investors from the Carlyle Group that the Bush family had invested in has interest in the Nursing homes of Maryland, I heard.

A portfolio of investments from the cardiologist and the others in a medical life and death situation should make a lot of persons in insurance, medical and political professions rich...don't you think?

How would you maximize investments and create income in the Nursing home business from insurance and government sources?

Make new laws operating the nursing homes.

Keep patients mind drugged and quiet sitting in a wheel chair flipping their upper lip with their index finger.

Cut the food quality and consumption.

How about Nexium, prilosec for shutting down the proton pumps in the stomach thus cutting down on diaper usage and wash downs by the nursing staff

Sounds likena great investment.

With the health care system in the U S, the best thing you can do is have a 357 pistol with one round ready. Doctors only go to school to manage their billing office.

There are still some people who are too stubborn to admit that they'll be needing long term care one of these days. Just because you are in tip top shape right now also means that you'll be in the same condition in the coming years.

People should plan ahead, expect the unexpected and consider buying coverage for long-term care. Government programs will never be enough because of their limitations and relying on this will most likely exhaust your funds.

Some would argue that it's too expensive to buy coverage. That's true but only if you don't explore your options by comparing quotes. Websites such as http://www.ltcoptions.com/free-long-term-care... offer no-obligation quotes for free. Comparing quotes allows you to find the suitable policy for you without stretching your budget.

The elderly should just accept the fact that they will eventually need long term care and the only way to receive quality care without becoming broke is by purchasing coverage.
