I read on AARP's website the criteria for this ranking, and it's all statistics and is rather very complicated. They sure have a way of knowing this. However, it is also important to take note that, according to www.acsia.com on their blog a couple of days passed, there should also be a long term care insurance company ratings and rankings to provide prospect consumers an overview of the certain companies' competitiveness.

According to AARP, Ohio ranks 44th among the states in the United States in terms of meeting the long-term care needs of the aging population. That's pretty low and should cause alarm to its residents. This will make them think twice whether to receive benefits in this state or move somewhere else wherein they can receive high quality care and give them access to more long-term care options.
This should serve as a wake up call to the government of Ohio and make the necessary changes in order to give older adults the peace of mind and the quality of care that they deserve. I hope they can also make changes in government programs in order to help more residents who can't pay for their long-term care expenses.
Long term care options like nursing homes is expensive in nature and can go as high as $88,000 annually according to http://www.ltcoptions.com/ . It is expensive in nature and that's why residents of Ohio and the rest of the United States will need a more efficient program that can help cover this type of facility. Long-term care insurance is a good payment option but it's becoming more expensive due to price hikes. I hope the government will help regulate the costs in order to encourage more people to get covered.
