If you need legal knowledge, and can find a Nolo Press book that covers the topic, just buy it. You won't go wrong. This book is no exception.

An elderly family member is facing choices about whether to enter long term care. We needed to know all the ins and outs of various options, including Medicaid, Medicare, and veterans benefits. This book covers everthing of importance in clear, concise text.

One problem in a situation like this is that the "experts", like the case managers and social workers at hospitals and nursing homes, seldom have the time or incentive to tell you the whole story. It's up to you to figure out what your options are, and what protections you have. This book covers all of the bases in clear, understandable language.

Important note: several laws and regulations regarding transfer of assets and Medicaid/MediCal coverage eligability changed in early 2006. Make sure you understand the current laws. This book was published in late 2006 and is very up-to-date.

Like I said, another winner from Nolo.

I am a senior citizen. That's the age you might think this book should be read. I wish everyone would read it by the time they are 30 years old, start doing research for their future, and, can understand why they need to begin a savings account for thier future.

I had no idea what a CCRC was before I purchased this book. I now live in one, and, believe that I am extremely lucky to be here. There is so much helpful information in this book. Everyone would benefit from it.

The author explained a complex system in plain English. This is a must read prior to planning for or buying long term care insurance.

As we get old, we start worrying about certain things, including how to cope with failing health and ability to function independently. If you or a loved one is looking for a comprehensive guide on how to get elders the best appropriate care for what they can afford at a certain stage in their life (e.g., coping with physical impairments, onset of serious ailment, or last few months of life), this book is certainly one of them.

According to the author: "Until recently, older Americans and their families had few choices for elder care. The options were either family care at home or residence in a nursing facility or 'rest home.' Family care often placed an overwhelming burden on adult children and grandchildren and seriously strained family relations. Care in a nursing facility, on the other hand, often created guilty feeling, drained family finances, and restricted the elder's comfort and independence." (page 31)

Fortunately, the options available for elder care have increased in recent years, ranging from hiring home care aides to assist with personal hygiene, dressing, or other physical and non-medical tasks; to occasional visits from nurses to give injections or take blood samples; to assisted living arrangements for more extended care; and finally, for more serious conditions, round the clock nursing care facilities or hospice care.

This guide discusses several options in detail, comparing costs and benefits, and what assistance (e.g., financial, or information on care standards or facility certifications, etc.) you might be able to get from programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, etc.

The maze of options, eligibility requirements for financial assistance, hidden pitfalls, and ways you can prepare for various things can be difficult to navigate if you don't know what questions to ask whom. This guide gives you a reasonably good roadmap to help you get started, and also provides special information on how elders can avoid becoming targets of fraud, as well as how to address the special needs of veterans and elders with Alzheimer's.

I never really thought much about long term care until the need arose with my parents a couple of years ago. What this pointed out to me is that it is never to early to be thinking about the subject; if you are still on the young side you never know when an older loved one may have a need for this, and as you get older, it is wise to be prepared for taking care of yourself and your spouse before it is too late and you don't have as many options, or you are rushed and aren't able to properly evaluate alternatives in order to make wise decisions.

As with all Nolo books I have read, this is an excellent source of information for pretty much all aspects of long term care. The chapter dealing with making a decision to buy a long term care policy was of particular interest to me. I currently have a policy but this book has a great deal more information than what I considered when buying the policy in terms of statistics, what to look for, etc., and thus now I am in the process of evaluating my policy based on what is in this book to determine if it is really worthwhile to continue.

The rest of the chapters are equally as helpful. They contain a wealth of information, conveniently located all in one place that answers a lot of the questions normally brought up, and also brings up a lot of points that most of us probably never think about but that we ought to think about when making important decisions about long term care.

It seems to me that this book is well worth the money. It provides valuable information, is written from an unbiased standpoint (as opposed to hearing the pros and cons from someone who has a vested interest in your making a decision a certain way) and it is so convenient to have everything in one reference work. Studying this book now can result in huge savings of time and money in the future.
