The second in a four-part webinar series hosted by gerontologists from NDSU Extension and South Dakota State University Extension is scheduled for July 10. The webinar begins at noon.
The webinar includes a discussion about long-term care planning and financing options, and how to identify the best care option for your family.
One in five adults turning 65 today is estimated to need long-term care for five or more years at some point during their life, according to Jane Strommen, NDSU Extension gerontology specialist. With the national median annual cost for long-term care ranging from $18,720 to $100,375, many families are unprepared to cover these expenses. In addition, families may not be aware of the wide range of long-term care services available.
"By investing time in learning about long-term care before the need arises, families will have greater control and choices when it comes to long-term care planning," Strommen said.
