     Long Term Care Insurance
     Long term care insurance can help preserve consumers’ assets by providing benefits to cover the costs of
     care services, whether delivered in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or in their own home. Long term
     care insurance can be especially important to middle income consumers, as the costs of care services can
     potentially exhaust an individual's retirement savings.
