Book Description

How will you pay for Long Term Care? The vast majority of people have not planned for the fact that they may not be able to care for themselves. They’ve been busy making a living, paying for their children’s education, and trying to meet all the expenses of everyday life. They may own their home, have a small savings account, and a small pension. All of this could be wiped out with a debilitating medical condition.

This EBook, “How to Pay for Long Term Care without going Broke”, is a guide for senior citizens to the many resources available to them. The EBook is easy to read with Case Studies used to illustrate major points. The basics of the process are presented from the debilitating medical event to eventual nursing care in the home or nursing facility, and links to great websites are provided for those that want to dig deeper. Hundreds of information sources were researched, but only the best are presented in this book.

Some important questions that are answered in this book:

What 5 documents should you sign that could save you thousands of dollars?
What are 2 great resources to contact after learning your loved one's diagnosis?
What is one thing (that most people don't know) that can disqualify you from Medicaid?

Easy read and very informative. Haven been thought many of the scenarios Tom describes in this book with my family members, I only wish I had read this beforehand. I particularly liked the section on military benefits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provides a great overview of the options available to finance long-term care for the elderly who are not rich. It is chock full of resources, with links to those resources. It is written in an easy-to-read style and is very understandable. The list of legal douments needed before an unfortunate event occurs is critical for everyone. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Tough Life Choices September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As one with an aging parent and one who just passed away, I wish I would have had this resource a couple of years ago. This concise guide with resource listings and examples in every chapter is going to be the first place I go to for many of those tough life decisions that will come up in discussions about care for the family in the near future.
Glad I read it and it will be an ongoing reference guide for us.

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had this book 10 years ago September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone who has looked after an aged person in my home before before I can tell you how useful this book will be to you if you are in, or facing, that situation yourself. You'll have a pile of questions and unfortunately many of those will be based around how to pay for the care. Thomas' book is a well-rounded review of just what you need to know about the financing of elderly care, what the factors are, where to find the funds, where to ask, what you are entitled to and more. Written in an easy-going and sympathetic style it'll be a really good resource if you need quick answers to many questions. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent resource for anyone with a loved one facing long term care. It's also an excellent guide for a spouse or child of someone who is likely to need long term care in the future. The author's suggestion as to what to bring to the hospital when a loved one is admitted is worth the price of the book.
