Are you interested in gaining peace of mind knowing you will not becoming a burden? Yes - buy what I call a "special kind of health insurance". Many people report they do not want to run out of the money planned for retirement years so buying means they insured their hard earned savings nest egg.

No one can predict tomorrow thus an old saying - "Life is what happens when you are making other plans" emphasizes why it's so important to prepare in case of an "unexpected" change in health. Ask yourself:
- Do you want to be a home and what kind of assistance would you like?
- Do you have a pile of money to pay the very expensive professionals to help?
- Can someone in your family change what they now do to come help? Would your family help you pay for assistance?
