14  It’s difficult to predict if or how much care you will need, whether you will have family or friends who can provide some or all of your care, and how much the care may cost you.  It’s easy to predict that if you need extensive long-term care or need services over a long period of time, you will have to pay for some or all out of your personal finances.  Making decisions about long-term care during a crisis is the riskiest thing you can do. The outcome is usually bad—little time, few choices, no control over where you might end up for the rest of your life. Own Your Future14

15  You learn what service options are available in your community.  You can save assets and income for other uses and preserve the quality of life for your spouse or other loved ones.  You avoid emotional and financial stress on you/your family.  You involve your family without depending on them to bear the entire burden alone.  You ensure greater independence if you need care.  You can stay at home or receive services in the community for as long as possible.
